Aberdeen Steam Laundry, Claremont Street
Ironing room, Aberdeen Steam Laundry, Claremont Street, c.1890. In this busy location, several dozen women were employed in ironing what appears to be mainly large sheets. Long trestle tables have been erected to allow for a greater flow of productivity. All the irons in operation would have been gas irons. Several wicker carrying baskets can also be noted in the picture. The Laundry itself had begun in 1879. In the early 1890s, their wash-house was fitted with steam washers, boilers, rinsing vessels, tubs for handwork and hydro-extractors.
