Lunchtime Lectures: Laundry Day
This bite-size 20-minute lecture (followed by a 10-minute Q&A) outlines the methods New Yorkers used to wash and carry their clothes in the 19th century. The talk, accompanied by historical images and artifacts, will also delve into how class, gender and standard of living relate to the weekly (or if you're like us, monthly) practice.
