Questions for Photo 4

1. This photo shows Hopewell products dating from the 1770s through the 1880s. Examine it carefully. How many of these products can you identify? How would they have been used? How many of them are still used today?

2. Look at the four Hopewell stoves shown in the photo. These stoves were used for both heating and cooking, replacing fireplaces in many rooms of prosperous houses. Why do you think there were so many different sizes and styles? Why do you think they were so highly ornamented?

* The photo on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Photo 4, but be aware that the file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
