Hotpoint top-loading washing machine. Electrically powered washing machines were being imported into Britain from the United States by 1920. However, they were expensive and few were sold. This top-loading washing machine was made by the Hotpoint Electrical Appliance Company of 24 Newman Street, London, W1, in about 1930. It is mounted on four, wheeled, legs and has a square tub and attached wringer, with the motor underneath.
