    I was born in 1960. Its surprising how... old fashioned Britain was about then. The US was far ahead of Europe at the time as far as modern conveniences go. Our laundromats were pretty much the same as they are now and by 1959 many already had at least a washing machine in the home (still dried on a clothes line though).

    Hello from Germany. My mother had received a washing machine for her wedding (1964) as a gift. She said later: "With two small children, two old people and a man who brings dirty work clothes home, a blessing. I think many people today forget what it was like without a machine.

    amazed seeing the older women carrying the loads on their heads.. Reminds me of places in India and Africa where everything is carried on the heads by women. Makes you think how much our culture has changed.. what we have lost in the fast pace for modernity.

    Women didn't have time to go out and get a career for their housewife career was too time consuming. And now, women who stay home are considered lazy and men will never have the homelife their grandfathers had. I'd choose laundry the hard way than be pressured to sit at a desk under florescent lights.

    • John Doe
      John Doe Hour ago

      @Usha Katiyar Yes it gets complicated! Plus films are only eligible for Oscars if they have been released in Theatres, but the large theatre/distributor chains insist on a period of exclusively showing the film, not available on streaming. So even a Netflix produced film isn't always available on Netflix straight away! Otherwise, the big 'opening weekend' numbers and annual totals would be significantly reduced, I think. But the drama of a Red Carpet event, interviews, photos is a huge advertising opportunity and great even when you don't actually go to a theatre to watch the film... would be a shame to see it disappear! 😩

    • Usha Katiyar

      @John Doe thanks for the link. Very useful for me. Though I feel the rise and low in the theatre going audience would be more evident if UK had a strong and consistent film industry of its own. The numbers can be judged better when the not so good films also get a release there. Not every film these days find its audience in theatres even if it has one, not only because the distribution is less but also because you can find them on an OTT service shortly after its released. Read about what 'Jio fiber' is planning to do in India.

    My father told me about how his mother used to wash clothes: big tubs of boiling water, harsh soaps and alkalies, beating the clothes with a paddle, rinsing them, squeezing them dry, hanging them up to finish drying, then ironing them the next day. A huge effort that lasted 2 days every week.

      Daniel Farrell Not all change is for the better ,there is usually a price to be paid. We may all now be able to have auto wash machines & dryers in our over insulated homes ,but we also pay the price in lost community that these old wash house places brought .Now people don’t even know their neighbours or even talk to them .So with the gains there is losses , life was tougher in the old days even those that were classed as being middle class back then would be classed as poor now judging by material goods owned .This generation now have more luxury’s even with all the so called austerity than we ever had .They are that spoilt they have grown up believing they are self entitled & the world owes them a living..& the price of everything & the value of nothing .How can that be good for progress or coping when the shit hits the fan ?

    10 O'Clock Monday morning. Me gran would push the pram, loaded with washing bundled in bedsheets, to join 'the girls' on their way to the wash house. I was pre-school, so used to go down there with her. I remember every detail in this newsreel. There were public bathtubs too. Monday afternoon she did the baking.

    I know some women who spend just as long doing laundry today. I think it's mostly because people now often over wash their clothes though. So Instead of one wash that takes two hours they'll do multiple washes a day. I find it's easier for me (as a single woman) to just wand wash nearly everything as it gets dirty.

    Jane Fonda on 8/8/2019 crashes a private dinner at EL Coyote Cafe on the night of Sharon Tate's last supper a very grim anniversary. I'm shocked that Jane Fonda still for many years zeroed in and made her unwanted presence the focus instead of the Anniversary of Sharon Tate last meal and her murder to follow. Check out Jane Fonda's past history with Vietnam.
