The cover photo shows a painting of a colonial era woman ironing some finery using what was known as a box iron.  Below is a ca. 1790 iron slug found on Horton Road that would have gone inside a box iron as shown in the photo below it.  Two slugs were used during ironing so that one could always be heating up at the fire while the other was being used inside the iron.
