My mom and dad were digging in the old “dump” on the family ranch and found some hurricane lamps and this old copper boiler. It was used to wash clothes with the 20 Mule Team Borax, F. Naptha and lye soap. My grandma filled it when it was on top of the wood stove and heated the water. They “boiled” the clothes.
Used in Eastern Montana, homestead in Dawson County, USA
