Charwoman 7«x 5» Print in a cardboard mount 10«x 8» from original drawing.. Bernie Wighton Bfj Wighton
   
Charwoman 7«x 5» Print in a cardboard mount 10«x 8«from an original drawing. The print is in honour of Bernie Wighton's mum who chard for many.
A charwoman, char or (ironically or in genteel phrasing) charlady is an English house cleaner. The expression was formerly used in the United States prior to 1950. The word has the same roots as «chore woman», one hired to do odd chores around the house. The position often features in fiction. One notable character is Ebeneezer Scrooge's charwoman Mrs. Dilber who appears in Charles Dickens's a Christmas Carol.
The artists mum (Ruth) was in service as a young girl, chard, worked in private homes. Also was a cleaner in schools, hotels, flats in Chelsea and Battersea Power Station.
