Here’s a question, do all of those smoke stacks lead to fireplaces? Did they burn coal, or wood, or something else? Were the fireplaces all lite at the same time, or did a person reside in one or two rooms only and kind of lit the fireplaces as needed?
My only frame of reference: as a kid in a small house, our fireplace used up a ton of wood and didn’t heat the entire house very comfortably. In fact, it would take a long time after the fire had gone out, once it was going again, to reduce the chill in other rooms located a distance away. That said, sitting in front of the fire when it was roaring was rather comfortable.
