Is this what you were looking for?
This is what is behind the left hand front door of the stove. Behind the right hand door is a water tank on top and a storage space below.
I never had a clue it was a coal stove and I rather doubt the previous owner did either but as far as I know he fired it with wood.
We're a long way from a coal supply and have no end of wood! I doubt I'll ever burn it out using wood.
These stoves were made in either Montreal or Toronto back in the day. It has a model and serial number but at this point I have no clue how to interpret them.
I forgot to mention that I was told the dark square above the shakers is removable so you can load the firebox from the front although I don't use it that way. The box is 8" x 12" x 16" so I feed it from the top.
