Before Washing Machines & Electric Irons

The guide who was taking me around brought me to a laundry cooperative. It was like stepping back in time before washing machines and electric irons even appeared. When laundry was still hand washed.Hung or placed on the ground to dry.There wasn't a need for plastic clothes pegs. And clothes were pressed with a charcoal iron.I found it so fascinating to be at a dhoby coop that saw various small businesses working together. Welcome to the Dhoby Khana Coop.Where things are still done in the old fashion way with a little bit of modernization in a simple electric iron.
