Our living room

Here's the fourth picture in my series of how things used to be around here almost a hundred years ago. This picture was taken down on the first level (slightly underground) from a position in what we call our living room today.

The windows help to identify the spot and that motor was sitting roughly where our piano does today. :-)

As always, the caption is brief and to the point "Cooperative Diary of Marçon — One of the motors" In keeping with our newest resolution, here is a picture from roughly the same spot taken today.

Of course the uninitiated will ask, What was a motor that size doing in a dairy?! And I really don't know, either. Have a happy day!


  1. What could it have been for ? Does anybody have any ideas ?

  2. Maybe they made butter and had a big churn ?
