Men wore chain armour, women were dressed in animal fur. No fabrics for ironing.

He bent a piece of wire into two ovals with the ends twisted together to form a hook. Parkhouse patented his invention, but it is not known if he profited from it.
Schuyler C. Hulett received a patent in 1932 for an improvement which involved cardboard tubes screwed onto the upper and lower portions to prevent wrinkles in freshly laundered clothes.
Three years later Elmer D Rogers created a hanger with a tube on the lower bar which is still used today.
Well done. Such people need universal recognition.

annasue That is very interesting. I was inspired that something so simple could go such a long way in history.
