The Electric Washing Machine

The Electric Washing Machine

 How do we know? B2B recently received a donation of the Hoover Company's scrapbook of the official opening of the plant! Containing everything from the tea menu and train tickets to photos of the plant, this scrapbook needed a special home where everyone could see it. After a diligent search (which was also fun--come on! would you normally think to Google "washing machine museums"?!) B2B volunteers found the Guinness world-record-holding Lee Maxwell Washing Machine Museum in Eaton, CO., the new home of our scrapbook. 

If you are headed West this summer, take a detour and check it out!

 This washing machine was the latest thing in 1949 and it was built in Wales.
