1920s Fiberco Laundripak

February 19, 2011 1 min read


Yep, for college students back in the 1920s, this was their laundromat. Without laundry services on campus or accessibility to a neighborhood laundromat (not sure if they even existed yet), college students had to rely on their ever-dependable mom to keep them in clean duds. As often as needed, they'd pack all their dirty (alcohol soaked) clothes into the Fiberco Laundripak and mail it home where their moms would make everything all perfect again- just like magic!





The case is in surprisingly great shape not only for being so old, but for apparently being used for many years. All the components are original- including the beautiful leather handle (although a little careful reinforcement may be in order before I send it home to my mom).
