  1. Do you have any ESB adverts I wonder.

    1. It’s better to have old and recent adverts online.


  2. My mother had one of the single-tub upright ones, with the mangle/wringer on top, because it didn’t have a spin cycle like modern ones. It didn’t have a lever like the one in the picture, it was electrically powered. Real bitch if you caught your fingers in it! You had to have a tub below, to catch the water coming off stuff going through the wringer. It lasted up to the 80s. She had a “Flatley” drier to dry stuff in, real handy in winter. That lasted even longer than the washing machine, up to the 90s.
