The story of “The Laundry Ladies”

An Elder spoke of her Grandmother and of her Great Auntie’s experience working in the rough trades in a city many years ago. She and her sister, along with some Irish women, did laundry.

The women would sometimes try on the fancy dresses before laundering them knowing they would never be able to afford such finery themselves. It was a pleasant escape from the drudgery of the many menial tasks of the working poor. 

The story was recounted by a visiting Elder and later recorded in the artist’s journal. An entire series of paintings was inspired by that story. Each woman’s personality is evident in that stolen playful moment.
