Looks like a coin operated dryer to me not a washer. But that's just my own opinion.

Yeah, looks like a commercial dryer.  OPL?  Looks like a timer on the right.


Don't see a lot of late 50's commercial stuff, that's cool.

Our webmaster generously gives of his time and labor uploading tons of vintage appliance media into library.

Above Philco-Bendix dryer is featured along with other commercial laundry equipment in a series of PB scans.

That is a dryer.

Looks like the same bottom panel design that's on the top-of-the-line home models from 1959.
