  1. Recuerdo haber visto una lavadora similar (mas moderna) en mi casa alguna vez cuando pequeña. Ahora esos rodillos se usan para estirar masa .

    1. Gracias por leer mi blog. He visto estas arandelas en los museos, pero nunca han operado una. Pasta del balanceo? Wow.

      Thanks for reading my blog. I have seen these washers in museums, but have never operated one. Rolling dough? Wow.

  2. Your site is absorbing and fascinating... My uncle became involved in researching our own family history and what we discovered was intriguing, but to have a resource such as this is, well, gold! I love that you comment on the entries - I'm going to set time aside this weekend to visit you again and travel through time. Thank you so much for visiting me at - I'm now a happy follower! Sending hugs from Shroo:)xxx

    1. I'm glad we were able to save it. I wish I had more than just the one year, but this one is special. You'll see why if you keep following. Thanks for stopping by.


Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
