Last weekend we went to The Blues Kitchen in Camden Town for a meal.
I noticed these "lights" hanging along the top of the bar. No one but me in our group knew what they were originally... Do you?
I recognised them straightaway as old paraffin heaters, just like I grew up with in my childhood bathroom.
My Dad would light it about 20 minutes before we had a bath and forbade us to touch it as it was dangerous!
I used to sneakily turn the flame up for more heat and turn it down again when I'd finished bathing..
I don't think anyone uses paraffin heaters nowadays as they are dangerous (health & safety regulations and all that) but we survived!
Showing my age now aren't I! lol
