Not all clothing that is hung to dry is laundry. Here, for example, clothing that got wet while boating was hung to dry so that it could be stored for the next outing. It was not laundry, because it was not cleaned before it was hung to dry.

A few items of laundry were hung to dry from a fire escape on the front of a building, where the fire escape and building were both painted the same color.

Window Access

Laundry was hung nearest the only window that opened. One possible problem of drying laundry in a tall building is that wind might shift the laundry and thereby create the risk of having to crawl onto the ledge to fetch the laundry.

A rigid bar was used above the window's ledge to create hanging for laundry to dry. Angle brackets were nailed to the bricks, and the bar was then tied with wire or string to the angle brackets.

Some PJs hung over a window sill instead of a line. This building lacked handy places to attach a drying line.

Socks hung in a circle as if to play duck-duck-duck grey-sock. Note the custom circles used solely for drying socks.

Two levels of drying in a quiet neighborhood. Note the knots in the line that kept the hangers from sliding together.
