Description: Caption:
This historic 1948 diagram, which had been digitally enhanced, explained the process implemented for washing, rinsing, and sanitizing restaurant dishes, by using a two- or three-compartment stainless steel sink. The process was an example of research on sanitation put into practice. A photograph of a three-compartment stainless steel sink can be seen in PHIL 8587. This was one of a series of instructional drawings, used by the Minnesota Board of Health to train its state public health workers. The purpose of these images, and the accompanying training, was focused on protecting water supplies from bacterial contamination due to incorrect disposal of waste, in order to prevent water-borne diseases.
