THIS WEEK

 

 

The familiar view of the outside of a windmill

 

 

Maybe you do/don’t know that the wind mill is also
the mill keeper’s (or miller’s) house.
When this toothwheel is in motion, driven
by the power of the wind or water …

 

 

the wheel (above) brings this cogwheel in motion.
Working together they grind the wheat to flour

 

 

 

After the wind mill keeper is done with his work
he hangs his boots

 

 

This is where the family sleeps. These beds looking like
closets were at one time very common.
It maybe to keep themselves warm
during the night. The beds look short, but that is
because in that time they used to sit up while sleeping.

 

 

 

This is  the living room corner cross from the bed.
They read, they sew

 

 


They have their pots and pans (metal and crockery)

 

 

They cook and eat

The buckets are for: groenten (vegetables) and aardappelen (potatoes). On the left is a slow cooker that runs on a petroleum

You can see they led a normal life in that day and age.

  1. It must have been a very noisy place to live when the mill was operating. I assume there was a way to feather in windmill blades if the wind was too strong or if they weren’t actively grinding flour. Thanks for all the inside pictures. The slow cooker that ran on petroleum was a surprise. I’ve never heard of that. – Margy

  2. That’s a great photo tour J! I tried to get that kind of pictures when we were in Kinderjiik, but there were too many people always in the way. I really enjoyed this. Thanks! And thank you as always for hosting.

  3. Dearest Junieper,
    In my hometown there still is a working wind mill and they often give demonstrations to school kids and groups.
    It was indeed part of life back in those days.
    As for the French Lit-Clos/Dutch Bedstee/Box-bed or Closet-Bed all late medieval Western European Furniture, they were short because most people suffered kidney problems and had to sleep ‘seated’… all from the way they had to preserve their meats and bacon in salt! You can read more about it in my previous post: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2019/10/french-lit-closdutch-bedsteebox-bed-or.html
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  4. It was interesting to look inside the windmill. That kind of ’closed’ beds used to be common in the western part of Finland too. Thank you Jesh for the tour.
