History lovers at Maple Ridge Museum are hosting a series of online experiments that are garnering some attention and even a few laughs.
These experiments, naturally, focus on history.
It’s all about rediscover items and activities from the past with the Maple Ridge Museum, said director Val Patenaude.
In this most recent experiment, they explored the history of laundry – specifically looking at washboards.
“This invention skyrocketed to popularity in the 19th century (along with soap), helping to decrease the amount of physical labour needed for this household chore,” Patenaude said.
