Irish Peasant Cottage Interior – Poverty

Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of the interior of an Irish peasant cabin (cottage), an example of extreme poverty. Rough stone walls support a thatched roof. A woman sits on a stool (the only furniture) beside a fire in the middle of the cottage – the smoke escapes through a hole in the roof. The quality of this image is acceptable, but not perfect, as it has been scanned from a very small original.
