Does anybody remember the old washtubs? Has anyone tried to buy one recently. I went to a local home improvement store and asked if they sold a number 3 or number 4 washtub. They will look at you like you have a hand growing out of the side of your head of you ask for such a thing. No one in the store but me and another gentleman who kindly explained to them that this was a galvanized tub used for clothes washing, and it held about 17 gallons. What has become of people today that they don't know what a good old fashioned washtub is?

I'll tell u a good one about those old wash tubs. I can remember taking a bath on the back porch in a big ole galvanized tub & watching the turkeys fly through the trees!

Barnes &Boring Hardware, Elizabethton probably carry these tubs. Wish I had one. "What has become of people today that they don't know what a good old fashioned washtub is?" Ah, that is what evolution is about, good people! Evolving day by day and forgetting or not knowing what our past is all about. Compare today/now with the Stone Age as an example of how much we have evolved.

I got a number 3 from Home Depot after much searching. They keep them in the paint section nowadays. Larry Spark's song Tennessee 1949 sort of comes to mind

Yay, how much was it? I think I'll get one too. I have a very old record by somebody back i the 40's singing about his Saturday night baths in a galvanized tub. Maybe it is Little Jimmy Dickens singing. I'm going to put it on a cd. Ah, long forgotten memories of childhood.

It was about $20 plus tax, if I recall correctly.
