These are washing machine that were on display at the county fair.
Oh how excited the gals who were lucky enough to receive these machine must have been!
No more scrub boards or wringing out by hand!
Cleaner clothes and less time spent would have been a wonderful pay off. Besides saving their over worked hands!
Amazing how some of these earlier items even made it through all these years intact. They were all well used.
I am so grateful to be living today when things are not nearly as hard on us gals!
As much as I love my antiques and vintage items to decorate with I would not want to have to use them!
I really do not have a romantic idea of the past. I know the reality especially for women.
We may still have our struggles but we are blessed to be where we are and have what we have. I feel this way a lot when I realize the struggles of my ancestors to just live another day.
Blessed beyond measure!
Now I will try to keep feeling blessed and humble as I tackle the laundry pile of the week!!!
