Behind The Green Drawer
The drawers and drop down counter door with their first coat of gloss on. Nan's cabinet was this colour green, on all the doors, and the frame was white.

Yeah, your right, I think getting rid of larders in homes was a huge mistake, and I can't understand why it was done ? They swallowed up most of what you used in the kitchen, all in one neat 'cupboard' ...I'd gladly give up my kitchen units for a larder, and have a lovely easy to clean minimal kitchen x x x

You're right, there, Johnny! My Nanna had just that. The only other item in her kitchen was a treadle sewing machine in its cabinet. What those old houses often did have, though, was a larder or pantry (as 12 Worthington Road has) - sadly lacking in today's homes.

They were so useful when you think about it, we can get very excited about these 'new' mini kitchens with everything in one large cupboard, but when you think about it, these were the pre-curser to them, as very often they were the only piece of furniture in the kitchen apart from the sink and cooker ! I'll never moan about a small kitchen ever again ! Ha Ha x x x x

We were given a yellow & white one for our first flat. It just fitted into an alcove by the chimney breast in what was a small back bedroom converted into a kitchen. Wish I had kept it, it would be so useful in the Summerhouse/workshop.
