[Minnie Frisby remembers the funeral of village glass-blower Peter Harrop. The mangle or wringer was a mechanical laundry aid]

 

Well I’ll tell you, I remember some of the men who had been to the funeral going home, and they went down the orchard by our house (which had a footpath down the side) they were singing, and this is what they were singing:- “Cheer boys cheer, your Mother’s bought a mangle, cheer boys cheer, and fill it up with clothes”. Yes, I generally used to know what they were singing; but mangles were only coming into use then, and of course they used to make a song about everything.
