Evolution of machines... Excellent choice :-) I'm very grateful that it has evolved.

My WW is about Valentine Vagenda...

When I was a kid my parents could not afford a washer, but my Aunt lived next door and she had one.
Hers was a ringer like the one on the left.
When I was about 6 my aunt crushed her hand in the ringer.

mine is up

Great picture... I remember those days of the boiler and the mangle! Happy Valentine's Day to you and Anna and your famous kitties.

@Ex-Shammickite: You remember the "mangle"? Have one here (the whole set in fact - from my grandma).

@Mother of Invention: These old machines were fascinating in the way we could follow more of the prosess, than todays closed machines. Worth a song?

@Mrs Lifecruiser: I just took a pause in the VD kissing - thanks for your jolly good comment.

@Lynn said: Same story from me: My aunt also crushed her hand in such a machine .... somebody had to pay for that..:))

@Shionge: OK, I'll do it - for you:)

@Expat Traveler: LOL - yes, that was my reaction too, when I saw this one in the 4th of July Parade in this SW Michigan Village Eaux Clair.
btw. The citizens there had no clue at all what Eaux Clair means; they were convinced it's a native name.

@Balou: Now you know what do to with it: Wash it and bring it to this years 4th of July Parade:))

Great display how washing machines evolved. I am just glad that I don't have to wring my clothes any more :)

I hope you had a great Wednesday...

@eph2810 said: So am I. I still remember the old laundry room down in the basement. From the time when household was a least a full day work.

@rose: Yes, and lucky we shall be.

Thanks for posting on my site. I just started posting a week ago, and I'm thrilled to meet all these new friends from all over the world. I love your cat! I will try to post some pictures of my beloved little fellow (if he'll hold still for a moment) Cheers!
