The Love, Lure, and Lore of the Clothesline
Remember the days long ago when everyone hung their laundry out on the line to dry -- when folks went “online” without the internet? Anne’s slide presentation will show why she (and so many others) love their clotheslines, will explain the lure of the line, and the lore that grew up around it. There will be washday history, along with sociological issues, the role of feminism, industrialization, culture, and ecology involved. The sharing of stories and memories will be encouraged. Anne has been a Clothesline Historian and Hobbyist for the past 40 years, collecting anything she can find that relates to laundry blowing in the wind on clotheslines, and since retiring, sharing her passion with those who remember.
