Lot #434: Vintage hand-operated Ewbank washing machine
In this week’s sale, we have a couple of vintage hand-operated washing machines. Relics of a bygone age when wash day meant physically demanding, back-breaking work. A completely different meaning to what we now think of as ‘hand wash’!
The Ewbank model hasn’t travelled far, it was manufactured just across the border in Blackburn, Lancashire. The Beatty Brothers washing machine is from much further afield, London… London in Ontario, Canada.
