Washday Blues – Bobby Duncan


Dolly Parton encapsulated women’s work in her Washdays Blues song, as does Bobby Duncan in this whimsical collage work.


A delightful record of all the problems that washing women developed before the glorious age of the automatic washing machine. A whimsical depiction of the toll such heavy repetitive work took on bodies and minds.
