Not Quite Wordless Wednesday: What IS that thing in the background?

We called
it an Ironer.  My mom used it every week.  It made ironing bedsheets (!!!! yes, essential!) much easier than with the heavy hand-held iron.

2Minute Video of Using an Mangle Ironer
i think ours was an Ironrite.   If you look at the photo of the decorated one (photo #6; you can't miss it!), you can see the flat thing hanging to the right.  It was operated by pressing the right knee against it.
Half hour vintage advertising video  but you can see the most interesting part in about 5 if you like
Me? i like permapress.  The only reason i have an iron is that i used to sew.
