VINTAGE WASH MACHINE ~ Reminds me of my mom when I was a child. She had a very old wringer washing machine, no dryer. She hung clothes outside in the summer, and inside on a wood rack. I was a little embarrassed.
I remember. Mom would pump the water out of the wringer washer into the laundry tub and reuse it for the next load. Whenever possible, clothes were dried in the sun. Living green before it was trendy to do so.
