1905 ~ Cole’s Hot Blast Stoves

I remember seeing this stove still in use in the homes of several older folks way back when I was a kid.   How would its efficiency compare to my Lopi stove?   I don’t know but would like to compare them sometime.  Has our technology improved over that used in heating stoves like this 1905 Cole’s Hot Blast Stove?  Click to Enlarge.

By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
