Description

Up to about 1910 most houses had a built-in 'copper' in the scullery for washing clothes. These usually burned coal, but gas-fired, free-standing wash boilers such as this were also introduced from around the turn of the century. This wash boiler was made by John Wright and Company and has two gas burners. Front view.
