A reconstruction of an imagined event. 

A servant stands at a long table carefully and methodically ironing the morning newspapers. 

The newspapers used are a full set of originals published in the UK on 12th september 2001.

The ironing of daily newspapers was a traditional task for household servants in the UK and is to a lesser degree still practiced today. Originally the task was performed as a practical measure to seal the ink onto the page so as not to dirty the hands of the reader.
