Maytag Ephemera


| October/November 1990


4300 S. Briarwood Ave. Sioux Falls, South Dakota 57103.

We are taking the liberty of forwarding the enclosed information and pictures in the hopes that you would enjoy them.

The larger picture shows, starting from the left, Dr. and Mrs. LeRoy (Janet) Krause holding the meat grinder attachment, and Mr. and Mrs. Patrick (Ruth) Lynn behind the churn attachment. The smaller picture shows the Maytag ephemera that we have collected. The gallon Maytag oil can, the pint mixing can, the hand oil can, two Maytag wrenches, and a small aluminum one ounce oil measuring cup with 'Maytag' on the bottom.

Our possession of this bit of rare Americana dates from Mrs. Lynn returning from a sojourn in a local hospital to find this basic Maytag machine in front of our garage door filled with some real and artificial flowers and a sign saying 'Welcome Home Ruth!!' A gift from friends.

I had a little welding done on the machine, and during the past few years Jim Johansen of Huron, South Dakota (a subscriber) and Loy Tillotson of Mitchell, South Dakota gave us the churn motor and grinder. We had to get it running which it now does beautifully.

Ruth Lynn remembers, during her childhood on the farm, watching her mother place the exhaust out the porch door, and then step-start the gasoline engine. Washday was from 5:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in those days.
