16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Anita and the Washing Machines

Anita is a soon-retiring hospital laundress. She has collected, sorted, washed, dried, folded, re-distributed hospital linen with skill, precision, style and love for a career time. She is the person in the back room that no ones knows, recognizes or appreciates. The hospital employees just grab and go and don't stop and wonder....I want to change this. Here's to the unsung heroes that make our world a more comfortable place. What can compare to a snow white, crystal clean, warm wash cloth on ones face when one is sick????
