Figure 64: Table with tin top

A table with a tin top was the ideal place to keep the water bucket.  Without the tin top, a wooden table top would be apt to rot because water would frequently be spilled on it.  There was usually a gourd for drinking either in the bucket, beside it, or hanging on the wall.  Sometimes there was a washbasin.  (Photo 1998)
