Commentaires : Before washing machines were mechanized, the clothes had to be agitated by manually moving and stirring the water in the vessel. After mechanization, machines like this one had a handle that, when turned, moved the agitator in both forward and reverse and up and down movements. The person turning the handle only had to make one motion to simulate all of them, making the work much easier. The wringer on top takes the place of manually twisting garments by hand to rid them of excess water. Clothes were run through two parallel rollers made of rubber, which were rotated with a crank and gears. The pressure between them squeezed water out of clothes.
