Did the Road Runner know about this one?

Museum exhibition - washing machine

 

Does anyone else remember the Road Runner who, in hot pursuit of his next meal, would buy more and more equipment from the ‘Acme’ company?  In fact, if this is a 1940s or 1950s washing machine whoever owned it had a lot more money than the Road Runner – most people couldn’t afford mechanical help with the weekly wash until the 1960s.   This is another photo taken at the current exhibition in Surrey Heath Museum.
