History of Washing Machines on CD

1910 American Washing Machine Catalog:

1912 Dexter Washing Machine Catalog: The Dexter Apache legacy began with an ambitious young inventor named W.H. George. In the late 1800's as washing machines began to gain popularity, Mr. George decided that he could improve on the existing designs and capabilities. He began building several hand-powered washer models and the business grew quickly in size and prestige. The Dexter Company was formed in 1894 and shortly began manufacturing wringer washers.

The Dexter Company acquired its name from Dexter, a world champion race horse. The horse was the model for weather vanes seen on top of barns across the country and the subject of a famous Currier and Ives painting depicting President Grant riding Dexter. Dexter's earliest hand and foot powered washers were made of wood slats bound together with metal bands. Names of some of the models were the "Monarch" and the "Billy Twister". In the early days, some models sold for as little as $15. Later on, washing machines were powered by belts, steam, gas or electricity and had enamel tubs made of copper, zinc, and porcelain.

In 1912, when the business operations outgrew the original factory, the company was relocated to Fairfield, Iowa where company headquarters and manufacturing operations remain to this day - a true success story.
