"Mam would be up at the break of dawn, Summer or Winter, and into the wash-house to prepare for washing day.  The copper boiler would be filled by bucket from the outside tap - if it wasn't frozen - and the fire would be lit under the boiler.  The clothes would be boiled, scrubbed, possed with the poss-stick, rinsed, the water squeezed from them between the wooden rollers of the mangle and then pegged to the clothes line in the back lane."
