Default Blackstone washing machine

I found an old washer that is a Blackstone model G, it looks to be made in the 20s-30s. it has a beige/yellow porcelain tub. it is similar to an old montgomery ward from the 30s i have. i have read somewhere that blackstone was the inventor of the small home washing machine. anyone heard or have of one. the one i have has sat out for many years missing parts and really only good for a flower pot.

Blackstone made washers and dryers as late as the 1970's, possibly a later than that. They were located in Jamestown, NY, a small city in the southwestern part of New York State, 450 miles west of New York City, and 80 miles southwest of Buffalo. They also made heater cores and radiators for trucks and automobiles. I worked there in 1966-1967, as a toolmaker apprentice, after finishing my Navy enlistment.
Blackstone shut down the appliance division, but kept the radiator division for several more years, before selling their machinery to another company. Blackstone was the name of the man who founded the company.
