It must have been used in a laundry?

Thanks for sharing this one. It's great to see these old stoves. Looks similar to ones I've seen in old RR stations.

That is a laundry room stove. Back in the day they were used to heat the water in the laundry tub on wash day. That's why the top of the stove has such a large surface area. I know a guy who has some of those laundry tubs in his cellar near his EFM, if anyone buys that stove I'm sure you can get a good deal on a tub for it.
