I have read about the old boatmen, or should that really be Boatwomen cooking a meal in a bucket. I assumed that it was just a case of putting all the ingredients in metal bucket they already had onboard and standing it on the stove.
This week I visited the East Anglian Transport Museum at Carlton Colville and in the building displaying road repairing machinery which included a living waggon I saw this poster on the wall.
It is plain to see that this particular cooker was sold complete with a bucket for cooking in.
I welcome any comments as feedback on this topic.
