What do you see here? (Addressed to the whole group)

Coal pot, chair, barrel

Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)

This is an example of something that is being reinterpreted now. It is an innovative way of conserving energy. Gives food a superb taste. Across classes people use it again. It was lost of a while probably because it is a bit more time consuming that lighting a stove and also maybe it was seen as something people who couldn?t afford stove use, ie people were too proud to use it.

What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group?alternatively what does the photograph represent?)

I don?t know if it is being used more by others but I always use my coal pot. If gas for the stove is done then I use it. I like roasting corn too.

More a tourists thing, like at Belmont estate they serve their buffet on coal pots

Brings back good memories. Buy a lot of corn and roast in the evening.
