Yes we had a dirt floor. At the beginning we had dirt floor for the whole shed, which was two rooms really. We slept in one part and the other part there was a kitchen and dining room well it wasn't a dining room because in those days we wouldn't know what a dining room was. And I remember my mum sweeping the dirt ... to clean the floor.
