Aberdeen Gardens kitchen: “There were at least two kitchen blueprints for the Aberdeen homes: the kitchen without a window at the sind and the sink under a window facing to the back of the home. The shelves to the left were used as a pantry for food or a cupboard for dishes. The Arcola heating system used coal for fuel. Note the small counter space. The open sink was usually covered with a curtain to store items.
