ABSTRACT
The article presents information about laundry industry in the U.S. In the 1920s, the laundry industry was the sixth-largest employer in North America. The only device housewives used to do laundry was a wringer washer; there were no automatic washers or dryers. Therefore, a proportion of households sent at least part of their washable items to what was called a family laundry. The work was picked up by a route driver with a standing order for pickup, or who had been notified to stop by telephone or a card placed in a front window.
