This is a section Taken from Arons Rod English nove.what is meaning of wash-copper and put-up board in this Text.i searched dicts but found nothing.To Aaron Sisson, this was home, this was Christmas: the unspeakably familiar. The war over, nothing was changed. Yet everything changed. The scullery in which he stood was painted green, quite fresh, very clean, the floor was red tiles. The wash-copper of red bricks was very red, the mangle with its put-up board was white-scrubbed, the American oil-cloth on the table had a gay pattern, there was a warm fire, the water in the boiler hissed faintly. Regards.

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.
