Kitchen Cupboard - 1884

 

A floor-to-ceiling cupboard of the type shown above was a common piece of furniture found in many kitchens or dining rooms of the 1800s.  This cupboard was found floating down the Ohio River during the flood of 1884.  It has been over 120 years since it was rescued from the flood.  However, the actual age of the piece is not known.
