There must be dinosaurs in Bedford then as I had my washing on the line on Monday.
My ladyfriend does not dry her undies on the line anymore as many years ago she had her knickers knicked (panties stolen for our USA friends).
By sometime in the 70s, the clothes line had pretty much disappeared from suburban America. They are making something of a comeback because they are environmentally friendly and give clothes that "fresh" smell. But, they can only be used in the day time and in good weather and it takes much longer for clothes to dry.

The one I remember from my childhood was the pipe style. And, my developing pervert brain did imagine it as a cross.

The older wooden style ones would be ideal for a crucifixion though.

Love the comic strip and yes the wooden one would do a good job because it would also make a nice whipping post.

I agree about the clothes lines-- and the cartoon is spot on. Often I tell young people that we used to dry our clothes using wind and solar and they have a hard time understanding. In many communities they are banned because they "look unsightly." The same people promote eco this and eco that, profess to want to save the planet, etc. Sorry, got off on a rant there.

More appropriate to this site, however, is my memory of tying up one of the neighbor girls to a clothesline post. Ah, the times we had...

Cowboys and Indians, the clothes post = the totem pole, needless to say Angela was a frightened squaw who had to be tied to the post to stop her escaping from "a fate worse than death" then her mum called us both in for tea.

Really? Clotheslines are not common in America? Or just in places where everyone lives in apartments?
Those supports do look inviting :D

When I was growing up the typical Australian backyard had one of these - very solid they were, an Aussie icon

In our family we dry clothes in the open air as often as possible, either in the sun or under cover. We have a hot air drier for damp conditions and express jobs. The open air is preferable. We also have space, and privacy, I suppose that counts too!

Or see this article in a Devonshire local paper as the pro-clothes line lobby replies:-
