Chim Chim Cher-ee
Prior to the introduction of chimneys, heating and cooking relied on an open hearth in the center of a main hall or large room, with a hole in the ceiling to draw out the smoke. Once chimneys became commonplace in Tudor homes, the wealthier homeowners added ornate stacks made of brick to their roofs, like this one on a 19th-century stable in Pennsylvania.
