Auto Wash Bowl

by

“The Auto Wash Bowl was built in Chicago in 1924 by The Newway Auto Cleaning & Service Corp., allowing drivers to run around in circles to clean off the undercarriage. After that, they drove into a stall where they’d get a proper wash by an attendant.”

    ACBoy– In the snow belt it would make sense to wash the undercarriage of road salt, but then the Auto Wash Bowl, if it wasn’t iced over itself, would wash the salt off with the salt wash from previous patrons.
