needful things #1

Things you find when looking for other things…i found this ad while cruising cookbooks at the library….i found the one below online…..imho this dryer changed the landscape of the city. where once you had long streamers of clothes line extending cross streets and alleys – a network of rope and laundry webbing the city…it replaced them with these little blossoms of shirts and sheets. i dunno why i just got so flowery…i saw the image and was filled with proustian flashback..i never lived in a tenement..but many of the houses had these in their backyards along with iron pipe trellises and insulated milkboxes.
