Sixty years ago, on laundry day, most people hung their clothes out to dry. During the 1960s, as the price of washers and driers fell, sights like this became less common. By the 1970s, it was rare. If people didn’t have washers and driers, most likely they went to laundromats. But occasionally you will still see people hanging their laundry out to dry. Fresh air gave clothes a wonderful smell and it was free! Call me nostalgic. The other day I came across a box of clothes pins in my darkroom. When I was shooting these images of Uptown, I used them to hang my FILM up to dry.
