Laundry Day

An antique on the street in Boise. The label on the front says this is a Maytag. We opened the lid and found it's become a trash can.


  1. Sad. I'd restore it and used it in the bathroom somehow.

    I remember when I was a kid, my Mum still hand boiled some laundry before she finally got herself a washing machine. It's still going strong, over 30 years later... Some things were made to last, unlike most of the stuff we produce nowadays!

    Happy Easter!

  2. Thanks for telling us what it is. I would never have guessed otherwise. Washing machines only became popular here about 15 years ago, so I've only seen modern ones.

    This would make a great-looking home decoration. But without the trash.

  3. You find the neatest things to take pictue of.

  4. Did you ever see the scar on my mom's arm while working out in the yard? She got her arm caught in one of these when she was a little girl.


Thanks for stopping by!
