Advert For Heyes, Lloyd & Shuttleworth Domestic Comforts
Medium: Print on paper
The 19th century was a time of technological development and change. For the first time machinery to help with the daily chores of housecleaning and sewing were introduced to the home making these jobs faster and easier. Not everyone could afford to buy these new machines but for those that could their lives were transformed. This leaflet features illustrations of mangles as well as sewing and washing machines. There were also developments in leisure activities and pianofortes and organs, also shown here, became more affordable than ever before altering the way in which people entertained themselves.
