A Clothesline Comeback? 


Clotheslines are making a comeback in not only rural, but urban societies. With the economic recession and a growing number of energy-conscious citizens, more and more people are taking advantage of this old-time, affordable creation.

As it used to mark tenement living, clotheslines are now a sign of summer, and a message of how frugal hipsters in urban society are making a statement for energy conservation.

Recently spotted in Williamsburg, Brooklyn- a woman using her clothesline as a pulley system for her cat! It seems like a good idea…who wants to keep their pet inside all summer when you can let them out in the backyard via a basket/pulley-system for some summer sunshine? How else can we make use of this simple invention?
