Eagle range, c.1911

Museum number: XF390

Curatorial note

This early twentieth century cooking range replaced the orignal Soane period range in the front kitchen - a modernisation for the benefit of the resident Porter, whose family lived in the basement kitchen area. This arrangement last until after the Second World War when the kitchen was found to be overrun with cockroaches and was condemned as unfit for a family to live in. The Porter was then given a flat on the top floor ending the tradition that the Museum's Curator [Director] lived at the top of the building.
