The old complaint Ready Aye At Every Call The Only Remedy
Tired out Never Need to Hurry The Crownwall
Crownwall Gas Irons
Beetall Gas Irons
Save the World from Worry
Toiling hard near a Blazing fire, Gliding along neath a Summer Sun
Neath the heat of a burning Sun In every Home a Treasure
Makes ironing day a Weary day The Crownall is The only One
My work seems never done. Makes ironing day a Pleasure.
