Bread Oven Manitoba Canada
The Lord Selkirk Settlement at Red River, Part 3

by Anne Matheson Henderson
"Most of the homes had an outside oven in which bannock and later bread and pies were baked. These were used long after the modern stoves came into the settlement ..."
The oven is intact, but note how the square oven opening has sagged. A rounded opening would have been stronger.
