Amish clothesline

An Amish laundry line near New Wilmington, Pennsylvania.  This setup is common in Amish communities, and involves stringing a line from a point near the home to a point high up a tree.  Turning a wheel moves the lines, taking wet laundry out and bringing dry laundry in.  More New Wilmington Amish wash photos.

And the Amish Peace book giveaway contest continues–thanks to all who have participated so far.
