Galley Equipment

The galley, or kitchen of a ship—and later, of an airplane and space  craft—which is the source of meals for both passengers and crew, has  evolved over the centuries into a streamlined space. Although confined,  it may be equipped with as many or more conveniences as the most  efficient home kitchen. It was not always so, however. In fact, early ships had no cooking facilities, and the amenities of travel by water were few.
