Thank you for the details on your family property in Lyon Street.
One thing I don’t know, is, if your scullery had a freestanding oven or a table to sit at… in other words, what made it a scullery?
In 1965, our scullery had a Linoleum covered floor, an electric light hanging from the ceiling and a Bakelite switch on the wall.
As I entered the scullery through a door from the garden at the rear of the house, there was, in the corner directly on my left a larder with two shelves – one of them being concrete. In the other corner on my right was a Belfast sink with taps with a window casing with two panes above. On the floor in the left corner beyond me, was a small table with chairs and in the far corner on my right was a free-standing gas cooker. Directly ahead of me in the centre of the far wall, was a door leading along a short passage to a heavy door at the front of the house.
