I was driving around the other day and saw this old wringer washer sitting in front of an antique store in a near by town. Of course I didn't have my camera with me. So yesterday, I went looking for it again and found it. The antique shop was closed, but the washer sits outside-so I took some pictures of it.
I remember when my parents had one like this when I was a child. You had to put the clothes in it with the soap and plug it in so it would agitate. When they got done you had to put the clothes through the wringer. My Mom always made sure I was away from the machine when she ran the clothes through the wringer so I wouldn't get my arm stuck in it. Then Mom would hang them out to dry.
The pictures of the clothes hanging outside, I took at Amanda Graber's house a while back. I got these pictures the time I went to see her and she wasn't home.
