coal iron

All over Mumbai you will see dhobi wallas (laundry men) using coal heated irons. I am so fascinated by these for some reason! Posted by Picasa

Pretty smart when electricity is not available, but in other cities this is definitely something of the past era.

Hi, interesting shots.

I worked in Sudan for three years and they used them there too. Very heavy irons and very skilful people.

I guess I never thought about that. Great photos enlighten, eh? Like Bob said, they seem like they would be very heavy.
