The Howick Historical Village Trip
We had a fantastic day at the Howick Historical Village Trip
We learned about how technology has changed from 170 years ago to now.
We washed clothes in a tin bath, used a washboard, a dolly stick, a mangle and then we hung the washing on the line with wooden pegs.
We used irons that had to be heated on a fire to make them hot!
We whisked milk until it turned into butter.
We learned about what people had to pack in their trunk when they emigrated to New Zealand 170 years ago.
Jordan had a shave!
Abigail emptied the 'Guzunda' - the night time toilet bowl - called a 'Guzunda' as it goes under the bed!
Carlos wore the mans nightdress!
What a fantastic trip!!!
