Over the Road 2 - Inside the Steam Laundry

'What do you think about these objects?'

Isaac Ngugi shows objects from the old steam laundry in Roehampton to members of the local community... and listens to their reactions.

The old flatirons remind a lot of people of their mothers, how hard they used to work just to get by, and the communities they grew up in.

This is the second episode of our Over the Road heritage project. We explore the stories of remarkable women (both virtuous & non-virtuous!) who lived or worked in the area of Roehampton from the 17th Century to present day.
