Hi all! I had some questions about a ‘dry sink’. A dry sink is simply a place used to hold dirty dishes and a wash pan filled with water in order to wash the dishes. It is usually a free-standing piece of furniture that is not hooked up to a water supply or drain. It was used quite often during the 19th century in the United States. (this is a photo from my Koch Cabin post). Thanks to everyone for visiting, asking questions and leaving wonderful comments. I really appreciate you sharing your time with me!
