I saw an old derelict and abandoned house in Tétaigne, France. On the groundfloor I noticed two old rusty "coal scuttles" (are they called like that?). Funny thing was, they were still filled to the rim with coal.
Kindof reminded me of my youth, before we had gas-fired central heating. I still have memories of my father, who would get the coal from the coal storage in the back yard, to feed the hearth using these "kolenkits".
