This is an advertisement for Hill’s Asbestos gas iron. There were 2 types of iron available during the 19th century; box irons, which used heated blocks of metal inserted into hollow iron shaped frames, and flat irons like the one featured on this leaflet. When using flat irons the entire instrument had to heated and there were many different means to do this; irons were laid on fires and stoves in the early part of the century but with technological developments there were soon gas and even electric irons available.
