I was driving down the road today when I had to pull over and take this picture. I can’t remember the last time I saw clothes drying outside on a clothes line. Here in the USA most people I know have clothes dryer in their home to dry their clothes. What about your town, how do you dry your clothes?

    Ha! Have you been to Italy?
    While we lived in Paris, although we had a washer, we had to dry our laundry on clothes lines criss-crossing our turn-of-the-century, elegant salon 😉

    I have a washer but still dry my clothes under the sun. there’s nothing like it. Also saves on dryer sheets, doesn’t it? 🙂

    My neighbor dries her clothes on the line and I’m always amused to see her son’s underwear. (He’s in his 60s, so it’s not little. 🙂 )

    I totally totally recongize this apartment complex. I drove by it often heading to downtown. I can’t remember the name of the street though — Gervais? No…Forest Drive? I bet the resident doesn’t have a dryer. It’s MUCH easier to hang on the line than cart the clothes to the laundry mat. (I’m very grateful for my w/d. 🙂 )

    It’s been years since I have hung out clothes. And no one does it in my neighborhood now. If I saw this sight, I’d pull over to photograph it too.

    We had a cloths line when my wife and I were first married. We borrowed the money to purchase a washing machine after the arrive of our first child but held off on expense the dryer for several years. Now we could no live without the dryer.

    Wow. Does this bring back old memories. My mom used to hang clothes out on a wire clothesline. It was number 9 “clothesline” wire. And once in my lifetime, back then, I had to go to our store, in our village, and buy a new piece of wire. It was rolled up. And galvanized so it wouldn’t rust right away. I remember me and my mom had a devil of a time trying to unroll the new wire and stretch it tight.

    I wanted to come here and thank you for visiting my blogs and for commenting. I just put a new series of pictures of Bears Mill on my 720 pixels

    After reading an article on the environment earlier this month, I am trying to do my small part and have just started using the clothes line in our laundry room to dry about 3/4 of the clothes. My 6 year old this morning said “Mom, why are my jeans always crusty lately?”. Those dryer sheets do work wonders. 😉 Maybe I could rub it on the clothes before hanging them – HA!

    Nice shot! I know very few people here who have their own washing or drying machines; most apartments forbid them. The average person uses coin-operated machines or a laundry service.
