My mum - doing the washing

My mum - doing the washing
Copyright (1971)

Picture of my mum doing the washing by hand - she'd just drawn up some water from the well located handily on the balcony. Looking over the rooftops of Katsoulanika.

We lived (as invited guests) in the mostly "abandoned" Siousis home everyone called Aunt Francina's. No electricity, no running water, and it was a 4km round trip to replace the portagas gas bottle on foot.
