Advert For Hill's Asbestos Gas Fire
Medium: Print on paper
This is the reverse of the leaflet.
This is an advertisement for Hill’s asbestos gas fire. The new technologies of the 19th century dramatically changed people’s everyday lives. Until this period homes had been lit and warmed by coal fires, but coal fires needed to be tended, coal was bulky to store and created a considerable amount of dirt, by the end of the period gas fires like the one featured on this leaflet had been introduced. These gas fires were usually highly decorative and were surrounded with beautiful and intricate ironwork.
