Clothes washing (1 o 5)

Clothes washing

Mrs Clevely of Bunnythorpe in the Manawatū is shown in 1926, doing her laundry in a tub under a tree in the garden. This was the most basic of washing facilities; by this time most Pākehā households had long been using coppers, and a few may have had washing machines. It is likely that many Māori households were still using a tub.
