I was brought up here in the 50s & 60s. My cousin lived next door but one. My aunt would have been mortified to know someone photographed her washing!!

I have to concur with S. Long's comment. My mother would have been the same. Monday was the main wash-day, and as elsewhere with very narrow back streets, the washing stretched across. Ironically, Monday was the day when the Co-op coal wagon came down the street and everyone had to use the props to raise their washing so that the coal-sacks could pass safely underneath without soiling anything. I remember that no one ever did their washing on a Sunday. - 'SACRILEGE' - I remember it happening once though. I think that the rest of the street went into mourning.
