    Did you try Google instead of dictionaries? When I Googled "wash-copper" (and chose "Images") I found all of these: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wa...M&ved=0CDUQsAQ

    I think this might be a mangle with a "put-up board". You put the clothes through the mangle to remove the water and the "put the clothes up" on the board.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
