Default Old WFO photograph

For those interested in searching out photographs of old WFOs here's a link that will take one to the Library of Congress photos
Search Results: "Ovens" - Prints & Photographs Online Catalog (Library of Congress)

And this photo:

Oven of Italian strawberry grower near Independence, Louisiana. The Italians in this section all have these outdoor ovens and bake all their bread in them
Digital ID: (intermediary roll film) fsa 8b21376 Oven of Italian strawberry grower near Independence, Louisiana. The Italians in this section all have these outdoor ovens and bake all their bread in them
Reproduction Number: LC-USF34-032741-D (b&w film neg.)
Repository: Library of Congress Prints & Photographs Division Washington, DC 20540 Prints and Photographs Reading Room (Library of Congress)

Note the wash tub beneath the oven. I thought at first the shelf alone was supported by the shaky looking broken cinder block at the end but it appears the oven itself is at least in part supported as the wash tub beneath is deeper than the width of the shelf.

Anyway, a fun site for those wishing to kill a few minutes.

Bests,
Wiley

I think we should keep this one around for people who want to build their ovens on wooden stands.
