Doing laundry now is unpleasant on the best of days. This 1905 Otoe County laundry day looks especially rough.
Who enjoys doing laundry? Wash day on the Trail farm in Otoe County in 1905 looks especially laborous. Two women and a man wash, wring, and rinse the family’s dirty laundry on the lawn. A hand-crank wringer is attached to the center wash tub. In the background between the two women, a fire heats the wash water.
