Stove Exhibit
at the Langham Cultural Center
Kaslo B.C. Canada

December 5, 2003

The Langham Cultural Center presents a very special show for the month of December entitled: A Century of Stoves.
This exhibit chronicles the evolution of form and style in North American heating and cooking stoves from the 1850's to the 1950's - essentially from black to white!
A dozen antique stoves represent these ten decades. Also included in the show are antique toy stoves, memorabilia, trade illustrations, vintage photographs, and a special display featuring the Kootenay Range. The show opened on Thursday, November 27th to an enthusiastic crowd of over sixty people.
The volunteer attendants report an excellent response over the first weekend.
This show runs through Sunday, December 28th and is a must see for anyone interested in antique appliances, cast iron, and Victorian furnishings.
