Hasteners, idlebacks, washing bats and goffering machines all had a place in the Victorian household but few people now recognise them or appreciate their usefulness to our great grandparents. The author has assembled photographs of many such bygones, with a commentary on their place in the domestic economy. This title has sold over 65,0000 copies.
