I recently "bought out" some items from an elderly lady's basement. This wonderful washing machine was one of the items I decided to keep. I need to oil it up - as you can see in this photo. I LOVE it not only because it is primitive, but because it was made in Ripon, WI. I did some research and found out that the company that made this later became Speed Queen. Pretty cool. I also love the big 3 on it. The top opens - I will probably store something in there. :)
