    "Through the Wringer" (1942) • "To keep your wringer operating properly, dry rolls thoroughly after use with a soft cloth and then release lever which removes pressure from the rolls." • by Dave • Photo: Ann Rosener for the Office of Emergency Management. This is how my great grand mother did laundry, then hung it outside on a homemade clothes line.

    Wash day (1942). Run a hose to the washer and when she was finished she hooked the hose to the washer and ran it out the door to drain the washing machine. I can still see Mom doing our laundry this way!
