Unique use of washing machine kept a Levittown lad entertained
One of the things Jon Buller did as a kid in Levittown in the 1950s, when all other sources of entertainment had been exhausted, was to stick his head inside the door of his family's front-loading Bendix washing machine. The class of 1961 graduate of Division Avenue High School remembers "taking advantage of the echo-chamber effect. I would make various sorts of Boris Karloff and science-fiction noises. Those were the days!
"We now have a top loader, and it has some sort of spindle in the center that makes it impossible to stick your head inside in the same way."
