Heating with an Old Octopus Furnace

My old octopus furnace was installed in 1942. It's a very important feature in my house.

Read my story, see my photos and videos, and a pdf of the original instruction manual.

    I have a soft spot for the old octopii - unfortunately I think many are being forced into removal by loan requirements. A shame, since they work in power outages!
