A “necessary chair” was a absolute necessity in the Victorian Era! Most homes did not have indoor plumbing and chamber pots were difficult to use, especially for those who were ill. This wooden chair was modified and a chamber pot was installed to make it more comfortable for the user.
Heston the Cat
Meet Heston, our courtyard cat! Heston is well fed and taken care of and in return he takes care of our house. Before commercial exterminators were the norm, cats would have helped homeowners keep their houses and outbuildings pest free. Not only is he a good mouser, he is very handsome!
