I found myself thinking about it recently. Maybe because of hauling around the giant tubs of grain and rice that I have stashed in my basement :LOL It was such a wonderful place! It was a long, narrow room that connected the dining room and kitchen. Cabinets with glass doors on either side, a window looking out onto the back yard, one tall cabinet for brooms, etc, low cabinets with solid doors on two walls . A long marble counter top under the window. A large bin that pulled out, probably for potatoes. Big drawers under the couter. The room was completely unheated, and part of it was over the basement stairwell and the rest of it jutted out of the rest of the house a few feet so it was always cool. She put her pies and cookies in there to cool... Wish I had something like it now...
