Laundry Room

Before washing machines, women would wash their laundry by hand using iron kettles.  Water was heated in the kettle over a fire and then washed using a wash board.  It took all day to wash and dry the clothes.  Clothes were hung out on clothes lines in the back yard and air dried.  Once the clothes were brought inside, the ironing would begin.  Irons were heated on their cook stoves.   Tending to the clothes was the responsibility of the women of the family.  Behind you is the final stop.
