Monday is Wash Day

Posts are whittled from cocktail sticks with thin wire strung between. The line is propped up midway with a small twig trimmed to form a 'Y' from a side shoot.

The non-descript. clothing on the left is in fact a scaled down early 1900s photograph of washing on a line. Shame it is too small to show detail, which is quiet interesting showing the fashion of the time, being trousers, stripped long johns and other garments. The trousers on the far left were used to scale the clothes, this being 3' 6" long or 7mm in 'n' gauge.

This line is at the rear of the Station Master's house. There are four more to make for the staff cottages.
