If the Victorian housewife needed knife-cleaning powder, candles, a saucepan or wallpaper she would visit the ironmonger. Other tradesmen relied on the ironmonger for their tools and materials: cheese knives for the grocer, coffin handles for the undertaker, tools for the carpenter and gardener, even builders supplies. Installing kitchen ranges, gas-fittings and bell-fitting were also within the ironmongers repertory. This book describes the Victorian ironmongers varied stock and also explains his purchase of goods, keeping accounts, giving of credit and prompt delivery service.
