Childhood memories, The Monday Washday
Around 1947 my mum doing the Monday wash in the old Dickensian outhouse called “ The Bruce” . Washing machines etc were like rocking horse poo then, she had first to load the old copper boiler with buckets of water, then came the task of lighting the fire under it and loading the washing , wash and hot water then transferred to a tub and pounded with a heavy device called a “Maid” before wringing the washing through a heavy mangle and hanging it out to dry, hot hard backbreaking work.
