Ironing board. Description: one wood and green metal frame ironing board. From the History Information Station: Object: Wooden ironing board with padded cotton cover. History: This ironing board may seem old to us, but it was a modern convenience in the 1940s. Many families at Hunter's Point had been very poor before the war; if they had been able to iron at all, it was usually on the kitchen table. But that changed when they went to work for the government to prepare for war. One of the biggest effects of the war effort was its impact on the modernization of home life. Museum Purchase
