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.
