A Primitive Washing Machine Made of Wood

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.  :)

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

Very nice! I love all the wear on the wringer. Oh how many shirts were squeezed thru there!
