I would say that up to those times and a little later on too, that the average working class Housewife spend virtually every waking momemt in keeping the home ticking over from Preparing meals & Cooking for the family, Washing by hand , Dishes and clothes including Dirty Nappies in a Metal Bucket, through to Doing the daily shopping cos no fridges or freezers... Cleaning the House... Minding the Children, and many other chores as and when they arose. I dont think looking after their own personal appearance in any serious way was ever a possibility..... My,0h My !.. how times have changed.

Got to agree there, B.B.! It's hard for younger people to even comprehend the amount of daily drudgery that women had to endure, till only relatively recently!
Shopping, meant visiting different shops, with different bags, because you had to, not out of choice, till supermarkets came along. Setting, and lighting the coal fire, took time, before it was warm enough to melt the ice, inside, the bedroom windows, but only if you were lucky!
As you mentioned, washing was a real ordeal, and drying clothes etc, was also quite difficult, especially in bad weather, when the overhead clothes rack that many had, in their back kitchen's, was used, or even the fireguard!
Considering their then lifestyle, it's no wonder many, if not most working class women, looked like Hilda Ogden, for purely practical reasons, at least till Saturday night!

That's how my mum lived Mojo, fish shop, butchers, small grocery store, chandlers for the fire lighters. Up out of bed, fire lit, hand washed clothes, bedding etc, for her, my dad, her mother and five kids, boiling a lot of in big pans on the stove and then of course, no where to dry it as you say. We had a clothes rack on the landing ceiling which she put loads of stuff on to dry, it worked too. We were poor, living of Sterlers cheques....the more you borrowed, the more you paid back, the more you paid back every week the less you had you had for food...on and on....living on the never never they called it.
Never, ever did she look like that woman in the photo though. She wore a head scarf sometimes, but so did lots of others.
That photo was only taken in 1971
