The Scullery

This photograph I took in the Ulster folk and transport museum at Cultra near Belfast, shows the shelves of a typical scullery room of an old period home of that era.

A scullery is a room in a house traditionally used for washing up dishes and laundering clothes, or as an overflow kitchen when the main kitchen is overloaded. Tasks performed in the scullery include cleaning dishes and cooking utensils (or storing them), occasional kitchen work, ironing, boiling water for cooking or bathing, and soaking and washing clothes.
