This picture predates our first washing machine (which didn’t have the cycles of today’s; you had to drain and fill with a hose, and it had hand-cranked rubber rollers for squeezing the water out of clothes). This picture was taken in Fort Worth, Texas, just after she came to work for us in the 1940s. Cora continued to work for us in Memphis and Atlanta.
