Still about the picture

As I told you, the banner picture is from a shed from my grand-dads place. He is dead by now and my uncle is living there, and it was probably my granddad’s ancestors that built the house in the first place. Anyway, my dad told me that it actually is a kind of a barn that they used to dry grain in. The tool on the wall is a fire “kex” that they had hanging on the wall on most houses in case of the house started to burn. They then used the tool to pull burning timber out of the building to prevent the house from burning up.
