Blue Monday

Years ago, all the clothes were washed on Monday. Hence the terms "Blue Monday" or "Wash Day Blues." Automatic washing machines, like the kind we have now, were not popular until after World War II. The photo is from the 1940's.

While hanging your wash out on the line is economical, or likely at the time this picture was taken a necessity, having a dirt yard probably caused the laundry to get a little dusty without ever being worn first! :)

(I know people with yards/driveways like this who wash their cars on them, the poor fools...)
