National Housewife’s Day

It’s National Housewife’s Day! Sadly, history often overlooks people who don’t work outside the home. We want to thank every house spouse for all they do and to encourage everyone to visit our Blue Monday exhibit to see what being a housewife would have been like in the 1900s!

Further to the right is a display of irons that were heated on a stove, or early electrical irons sitting on a rag rug, and a stand for drying stocks
