Aig deireadh nan 70an, dh'innis A' Bh-Uas Rollo, seann boireannach a bha a' fuireach air Friar Street, Inbhir Nis, a cuimhneachain air seann Inbhir Nis don Bh-Uas Sneddon. Bha A' Bh-Uas Rollo air a bhith a' fuireach na h-òige air Shore Street agus ghluais i gu Friar Street aig toiseach nan 1920an. Bha còigear chloinne aice; triùir bhalach agus dithis nighean. Bha an duine aice ag obair airson Rèile na Gàidhealtachd. Anns an earrann labhairt seo, tha A' Bh-Uas Rollo a' cuimhneachadh air a bhith a' glanadh an stòbh.

San dealbh-chamara seo chithear A' Bh-ph. Rosie Rollo, an duine aice, Iain (ann an eideadh an airm) agus leanaibh aca. Chaidh a thogail mu 1918.

Well, I'd rake out all the ashes in the morning; take an old paper, waste paper, an rub up the grate to get the worst of the grease off, of dust; an then put a small bit o the zed bright on, an then do up wi an - rub it into the grate wi a small brush that I have for that an, when that dries up I just polish it up an then finish it off with a cloth, or a piece of velvet or something. An for the steel I do it wi sometimes Brasso on a damp, on a cloth full o Brasso an then with fine steel wool.

Interviewer: An it would have been the same in the 1920s except it was just black lead that ye had then?

Oh, yes, yes. Black lead we had then. But sometimes if we hadn't the steel - emery paper - we just did fine sand in the ashes, fine ashes, an just mixed the two an it made a paste. So we put that on. Sometimes -

Interviewer: Sand and ashes?

Sometimes, we couldn't afford emery paper. So we just did it wi that and -

Interviewer: That cleaned it just the same?

- cleaned it up.

Interviewer: Quite a lot of work?

Oh it was -

Interviewer: I mean, d'ye clean it every day?

Of course it would have to be cleaned every day, if not it wouldn't work at all. They wouldn't be - get any ventilation unless ye cleaned the ashes out
