Victorian Washtub and Posser

Using a posser to move the laundry and hot soapy water around in the wash tub to help with the cleaning process. Another posser can be seen standing by the side of the washtub. Note the size of the tub. How many tub-fulls do you think it would take to do a whole week’s washing?
