The Victoria Wash House

Cruising around Pinterest, I found this page  which all sorts of interesting wash day information but most fascinating of all, it led to this video, The Victorian Wash House.

It doesn't even look that long ago. Imagine lighting a fire a special construction in the corner of your scullery to boil the water to do your washing. A Wash House must have seemed like a great thing indeed.

turns Monday into Funday!

Hmmm. I never did like Monday all that much. It's not washing day here, it's ironing day and I normally leave it until the absolute last minute. Just so I can sabotage the last chance of a relaxing evening in front of the telly. Still, technology and housework, it's a winner.
