A Classic Kang

Earlier, we posted about the on-the-floor kangs that are favored in this part of the world, especially areas populated by people of Korean descent. What you are looking at here is the brick platform kang that is used by an elderly woman who lives in a small village in rural Hebei Province. In the winter time, the bricks are heated from beneath via a simple ventilation system.
