The fireplace with Dutch oven, the furniture and utensils are reminiscent of an earlier time period in America. Photographer Chansonetta Stanley Emmons typically photographed nostalgic settings and used dated production methods as part of her aesthetic.

Emmons photographed nostalgic scenes throughout New England, as well as in the Carolinas, Canada and Europe.
