FIRST WASHATERIA ON THIS DAY IN 1934

Washateria is an alternate name for Laundromat, especially in Texas where the
first of it’s kind opened in Fort Worth by Noah Brannen. Though steam-powered
laundry machines were invented in the 19th century, their cost put them out of
reach of many. Brennan and others began renting short-term use of their
machines. Today,most Laundromats and washaterias in the US are fully
automated, coin-operated and generally unmanned, with some operating
24 hours a day.
