|Upright Parlor Stove|
Cast-iron parlor, or heating, stoves, whose ornate decoration reflected Victorian sensibility,
came into vogue in the 1850s. Parlor stoves were far more efficient and a family was no longer
tied to the fireplace as its only source of heat. Parlor stove production continued until the 1930s,
when indoor heating rendered them obsolete.

Mother and I went to Sunday School and church. Bought the paper. Put up the parlor stove. I went to the show.
