This Is A Great Day In The History Of Clean

On this day in 1934 in Fort Worth, Texas, the first laundromat in America opened. It was called a Washateria and it was not coin operated. It had 4 machines, rented by the hour. It was just for washing. Folks continued to use the sun and clothes lines at home for any drying.
