As I was sitting in a beach chair eating my corned beef sandwich, with Grace at my feet also eating a sandwich, I glanced across at the winding mechanism of my sister's Hill's Hoist and noticed something I've never seen on my clothes line.
I wonder if mine is a fake, or an imitation or even a predecessor. I always assumed our rotary clothes line was a Hill's Hoist. Now I'm not sure. Not that it really matters because it's a lovely old thing and does it's job. Still, now I'm wondering.
