Siv's Mk2 - a Memory of West Gorton.
No stranger to Friday bath night (did we really only bathe once a week?), where the tin bath was hauled into the kitchen in summer & in front of the fire in winter & filled by kettle. As I got older my dad would take me down to the public wash baths where I could luxuriate in a 'real bath' in a real bathroom. My dad actually knew the man that ran the baths for the council & instead of the fixed amount of boiling hot water normally allowed users, he left me with the hand wheel piping control to have as much hot water as I wanted (eat your heart out health & safety). However, I have never felt I was deprived & from a poor background - happy days.
