On April 18, 1934 the first laundromat in Fort Worth, Texas opened.
Owner, John F. Cantrell named the location the “Washateria”. If you visited the location, you would have been able to use four electric washing machines. Each of these devices were rented to the public on an hourly basis! In honor of the first laundromat in Texas, here are ten retro laundry pictures that will make you nostalgic for the past!
