Washing Machine circa 1940's?, still sitting on the back porch. My brother (when he was 8 yrs old) got his arm stuck in the roller.

The "roller" is actually called a "mangle" - and now you know why.

That image brought back memories. I remember sometimes watching my Grandma doing the laundry in her basement using a machine just like that. "Mangle," huh? Well, I can remember that happening to a few things that didn't get fed into it properly. I was a slow and laborious process "wringing out" the clothes so they were dry enough to hang on the line outside. And to think that, to her generation, that machine was a big time saver.
