Clothes drying on the clothesline
Washing clothes a century ago was really hard work, more than just pushing a few buttons on a modern washing machine. In my neck of the woods in Haninge, just south of the Swedish Capitol, laundry was big business back then. Earlier in the week I visited the local historical society, (free coffee and cake). Haninge hembygdsgille at Tingshuset in Västerhaninge where they had an open house. This old time clothesline was used to promote a new book about laundry back in the good old days.
