The Great Pre-Tinder: Tales Of Love From The Washateria

What better place to meet your new beau than at the laundromat, when you’re wearing your last-ditch threads and macrame vests while your good clothes toss around in suds? These girls discovered a fun-sized satin-jacket-clad boy emerging from the bowels of a Huebsch dryer. Bonus: he could very nearly fit into the laundry basket! Score!

  1. Ha! Back in those days it was considered a requirement to dress up when ever going out of the home. Women actually put in good clothes to go to the washeteria.

    1. You know what is so funny, Paul? Yesterday I was looking at a 1949 LIFE, and they had a cartoon of a laundromat with a naked woman seated, waiting for her clothes to dry. Nipples and all. And it was 1949!
