Tuesday, May 19, 1936

Cool with thunder showers this afternoon
the electric lights off from the showers so I could not do the ironing this afternoon
ironed four dresses and lace necklaces and handkerchiefs and silk slip etc*-
Made butterscotch pudding and cooked the spinach Harry brought
Mother was difficult all day-

Coleman Instant-Lite Gas Iron Model #4A*

*For someone who "could not do the ironing" because of the lights going out, Irene sure ironed quite a bit! I'm not sure if Irene would have had a gas powered iron like the one above or an iron to heat on the stove.

    1. Thanks Sara! I appreciate it so much. & I know Irene would too!


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
