Nice! I'd really like to have a 1959 CI washer!

I know Volvoguy87 would snatch it up if it were a 1958...

Both Norge dryers look to be later than 1956.  The swing-out, push button activated door on one of them is the same as what was used in 1956, but the control panel appears to be a few years newer.  The clam shell Norge with the full width fold-down door is, I'm guessing, even later.  My mom's '67 Snorge had that same fold down door and push button opener.


Both seem overpriced to me, but to someone who needs one to complete a set I suppose the asking prices aren't out of line.


I'm pretty sure the Norge pictured below is a 1956.  My mom had this same gas model until it was replaced in 1967.

Someone go save them! Hey, anyone have any leads on a Westinghouse Laundromat like an L-5 or L-6?

Join the club Mark.  There are four or five of us actively looking for one right now for it.  My suggestions is jump if you find it (or one of us will).  Best of luck and when you find two, send one my way (or vice versa).

Frigidaire Dryer 1959 (I believe)

The above pictured looks a lot like my dryer, (though I have to say mine is in mint condition and runs well) Frigidaire Model DCI-59PK. If anyone is interested, I would be willing to sell. I do have the original receipt and manual.

Are those mouse droppings on the top of the Frigidaire washer in the first photo?
I wonder if this one had a snake inside too?

Wow, I can't say that I saw this ad originally. Did anyone get the washer? Was it at Ted's?
