Pelargonium on the window sill

Pelargonium on the window sill
Pelargoniums were popular and common house plants in Finland in the 1800s and 1900s. For many Finns still they bring back fond, idyllic memories of their grandmothers. Picture taken on Kauppila museum farm at Laitila, Finland.

In this style of building farms the farm was made up of two squareish adjacent yards on opposite sides of the main house, both were closed spaces surrounded by buildings. One of the two yards was called men's yard and it was surrounded by the main house, storage buildings, maids' and farmhands' quarters, workshops and stables. The other yard was where the women worked. It was called cattle yard and it was surrounded, in addition to the main house, by the cowshed, piggery, sheep barn and henhouse.

Karjapiha. Umpipihan rakennustyyliin kuului joissain tapauksissa kaksi erillistä umpipihaa. Ns. miesten piha, jonka ympärillä on päärakennuksen sisäänkäynti, varasto- ja asuinaitat, verstaat sekä talli. Päärakennuken toisella puolella sijaitseva karjapiha taas on naisten työmaata. Siellä sijaitsee navetta, lampola, sikala ja kanala. "Kauppilan umpipiha on alkuperäisellä paikallaan Laitilan Koukkelan kylässä sijaitseva museokokonaisuus. Rakennukset ovat vanhoilla sijoillaan kylän kulttuurimaisemassa. Kauppilan umpipiha kuvaa elinympäristöä 1900-luvun alun vauraassa vakkasuomalaisessa talonpoikaistalossa.
