Photographer's Note

One of our countryside neighbors has an old farm near a little stream. The building here is there old washing house. Their great grand parents used a large kettle, heated with fire, to get hot water for washing. The rinsing was made in the stream. Today it looks cute, but it was hard work for the women who took care of it.
The washing machine was invented by the the religious sect the Shakers in New England, and was a great relief to millions of women.
