Wayback Wednesday At the Fair

Recently I attended the Oregon State Fair. I had a great time checking out the rides, and food, music and livestock. As I was checking out the displays from all of the counties around Oregon, I was impressed, as only an appliance guy could be, by the display from Umatilla County. That is Pendleton Round-Up country and they brought with them a display of pioneer artifacts and antiques. Naturally, the old appliances caught my eye and I snapped a few pictures to share with you. I hope you enjoy!
The classic Maytag Wringer Washer.
The white barrel to the left that looks sort of like a rice cooker was an old Kenmore washing machine I had never seen before. Unfortunately the picture of it did not turn out.

The wooden contraption in the foreground is a pre-electric washing machine, in the background is a different view of the wringer washer.

This is an unusually narrow old range.

The evolution of laundry is captured here.
