[Very] Dirty Laundry

Should you count yourself among the laundry-averse, I offer this peek at how the matter was handled in the 'good' old days, i.e., 1905. One primly deposited soiled clothes into a bin, turned on the water, and then hand-cranked the barrel for perhaps hours on end to achieve clean garments. [I am assuming this demure young lady's left bicep would give Popeye a run for his money.]

Change is good...in this case, very good.
