This 2001 photo shows an old iron that once belonged to Gladys Edna (Bittner) Korns of Southampton Township, Somerset County, PA. It now belongs to one of her descendants. In practice, the iron was heated on the wood burning stove, and then used to press the family clothes. The handle is removable, so that one iron body can be heated while the other is being used.
