How many of you have one of these? This one belonged to my Mother. I never used it, but I can remember my Mother scrubbing clothes on this very board. If we had to do that today, I have a feeling our backs wouldn't last very long. Besides scrubbing on the board, most people had to carry their water either from a spring or a barrel that caught rain water from the house. I guess we are spoiled today....but I am so thankful for my running water and my wonderful washing machine. But if times get bad enough, I have my wash board and my rain barrel ready......and pray my back holds out!
