In this picture you can see the kettle hanging over the fire. Looks like the people liked tea back then.
This is a house found in the oldest part of Galway, Claddagh. This was one of the last cottages
to be left in Claddagh. At the back of the picture you can see the houses that are present in this area today. We talked about the size of the house, the colour, the thickness of the walls, looked at the roof and also talked about the lady standing in front of the house.
Next week are going to be examing lots of old pictures of this area and Galway City. We will work like historians telling stories from the pictures we study.
This is what people used before hot water bottles.
