Trade card for the Bench Wringer, American Wringer Company, New York, New York, undated

EP001.01.069.01.01.020 (RS617)

Description

This trade card promotes the covenience of the American Wringer Company's bench wringer in contrast to the difficulties of operating tub wringers. In the left panel, a woman struggles to pour water from one washtub set on a chair into one on the floor, while another woman strains to hand crank washing through a wringer. In the right panel, a single woman with ease hand cranks washing from one washtub into another positioned on a bench, while another woman observes this scene with amazement.
