I remember those door steps, shining white or red particularly those that led directly to the street  or had small front gardens. My mother only did ours occasionally which embarrassed me, which was met with ,if you want it done you know what to do.I tried it was still done only occasionally.

I remember getting a new twin tub washing machine when I first got married and my Grandma often reminded me that a dolly tub and posher was all she had for washday, along with a mangle for wringing out the wet washing before line drying it propped up by a wooden prop, made years earlier by my Grandad.

Memories......................indeed  ;D

I can just about remember helping my Granny to make butter in what looked like a big sweetie jar with paddles on the inside & a handle on the outside to turn the paddles...........the thicker it got.....the harder it was to turn & when thick enough we had to roll it into balls with small things that again looked like paddles but these ones had lines on  ???

I bet you wish you still had one of those Annie....probably a collector's item now....we collect 1940s house house items for the school groups visiting the Heritage Centre where I am a volunteer....seeing them view a dolly tub, posher and mangle with idle curiosity is always a source of amusement....when they ask how you "Plug it in"   ;D ;D ;D
