Malleys automatic......Australian 1950's horizontal axis, top loader, bolt down. Australian members dream machine, there has to be one somewhere. We know stranger discoveries have happened.

Rinso suds cake?

I wonder how effective the Rinso detergent with the "thicker, richer" suds advertised on the box was in that h-axis machine?

I bet the foam would come right out the little loading door on the top forming a nice suds cake.

It looks a little like either a Blackstone, or a Bendix Economat.

Rinso was a decent detergent, but I remember it was a high sudsing detergent. Had a very soapy smell, if I remember correctly. I've never seen one of those type of washers growing up, they were not a popular brand in my neck of the woods. Sure do miss some of the detergents of yesteryear.
