Umbrella Clothes Bars - 1904

Something so simple represents something so practical. A patented clothes dryer from 1904 recently was offered at auction in 42N country's Traer, Iowa. eBay sold one of these for about $50 recently. Whether you remember using one of these or not the practical technology is always something to keep in mind if you need to dry clothing. New line dryers go for $75 or so but don't look so cool. Know that.

  1. I use one of these every winter. Now we have ceiling fans and they go together great. Mine will hold 2 loads of laundry if done efficiently. Keeps my electric bill down and I love it.
