the mangle

…The mangle was an important part of the wash day, along with the copper boiler. We had a washing machine which had to be filled by hand and sloshed water everywhere. The water was heated in the boiler first and then tipped into the washer. Certain items were put through the mangle to squeeze the water out. It was quite an impressive piece of equipment and did the job very well. It certainly helped our mam with all the washing she had, though it was still a hard chore…
