Pensioner's staggering collection of irons

9 posts in this topic

Standing in a room filled floor to ceiling with old irons, pensioner John Rollins shows his astonishing collection of the trusty household appliance.

The 74-year-old has one of Britain's largest collections of irons - amassed during three decades of scouring fairs, antique shops, and auction houses.

He now owns a staggering 800 irons - which includes irons in all shapes, makes, sizes and colours, ranging from the first one he ever bought, a box iron right up to modern day steam irons.

Why? They didn't have permanent press material in those days and they didn't want to take the baby to church on Sundays all crinkly. People also made a living selling hand made dolls and they wouldn't sell as well if they looked rumpled.

Have you ever used an iron in your life? :P
