[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This would have been daily life in the early 18th century - despite 100 temperatures outside, this cook would work long hours in front of a hot fire in the hearth, cooking and baking all day for her employer, a wealthy doctor in Brattonsville, South Carolina.

I was in a T-shirt and shorts and could barely stand the heat. Admirable historic re-enactment on a daily basis... very convincing. Took me right back in time!

No tripod. No filters. One helluva hot place!

Hello Scott,
