The Hills Hoist….still standing in my dad’s backyard.
Most Australians of my generation and older will remember this Australian icon…the Hills Hoist. There are still some standing but I think not for much longer. There was one in my backyard when I moved here 30 years ago…but alas… we pulled it down.. to be replaced by our son’s climbing frame.
They actually were very useful items…the perfect clothesline, that is, if you had a big backyard as most of us did back then in the suburbs.
