Big Metal Tree - Magnet
In the 1950's and 1960's most Australian homes had a Hills Hoist. The idea was first dreamt up in 1895 but was designed in 1925 and only started being sold by Lance Hill in 1947, who built them in his backyard.
It became popular in the 1960s during the housing boom after the Second World War and families have been using this big metal tree for drying clothes since. It is considered an icon of Australian suburbia.
