Chimneys and Children?!

There are few professions in this world that are as rich in history as that of a chimney sweep. Wikipedia does a really nice job of summing it all up…https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimney_sweep, but did you know that it wasn’t until 1840 that boys were no longer allowed to sweep chimneys…in the 17th and 18th century master sweeps employed “climbing boys” as young as six years old!!

At Alpine Chimney Sweep, we don’t employ children…we just act like them; grumpy when we are tired or hungry, and full of wonder for the world around us. Happy Monday Friends!
