The No. 7 Modern Mistress solid fuel stove, Drumnahunshin Farm, Ulster Folk Museum

This is the older model, with the hot water tap at the side, exactly as my Granny Wilson had in her wee house at Ballyfrenis. Took this photo today. Click to enlarge.

I recently read Hugh Robinson's 'Across the fields of yesterday : memories of an Ulster Scots childhood in the Ards" in it there are numerous mentions of the modern mistress. It seems to have been a staple of the ulster farm house.
