I suspect that you mean DOLLY tub. A twin tub would surely have a spin-dryer built into it.

Re: accrington metallic brick

In the early days the mangle was indeed used in conjunction with a dolly tub but feel that the only skill needed to use a dolly tub is patience, whilst filling it.

In later life, when Accrington was making the transformation between black & white and colour, the mangle was used for getting my Grandad's omelettes as flat as ............... err pancakes.
