    My Da used to talk about these things, often, the only time I ever seen one though was in Beamish.

  • Thank you for your kind comment David.We used to have a Mangle also a poss tub and posser not unlike the one in the painting.When i was a kid and i can just about remember getting my hand caught in the rollers, my god it did hurt.Beamish is one of my favorite places to visit

    It reminds me of Monday wash day when I was little , I hated it especially in the winter you could never get near the fire.
    Lovely work.

  • Thank you Irene.I remember my mother used to spend all day doing the family wash boiling water in a huge brass tub scrubbing the clothes on a washboard and baking large stottie cakes (bread) in between… AHH.Happy days i think not
