Thumbnail Image of Download Maytag Gyrafoam Aluminum Washer Brochure
This is one of the earliest pieces of washer sales literature history I have seen. It is a brochure produced in the mid 1920s selling the Maytag "Gray Ghost" washer. This fascinanting brochure was made only two years after Maytag introduced the first agitator in 1922. Its in color no less and printed on thick 8.5 x 11 inch paper, which must have been very expensive to produce in those days. A must for any early washing machine enthusiast.

This highly entertaining magazine covered the design and manufacturing areas of Major Appliances, Small Appliances, Small Electrics, Radios, Televisions and other electric home products from the mid-20th century.

Of particular interest:

Speed Queen redesigns it's coin-op washers with 14 distinct changes.

Norge changes automatic washers cabinets to zinc clad steel.

Packaged laundry centers by Westinghouse and Hotpoint. Including a Westinghouse Laundromat and sink combo built right over the washer.

Hotpoint drying cabinet.

Hotpoint's high controls and automatic bulk bins that dispense detergent, bleach and softener automatically! I'm not sure if any of these came into full production.
