The Drying Art of Tea Towels

1960s, 1970s • 16392 Views • Comments Off on The Drying Art of Tea Towels

Some people buy tea towels with their favourite band, television show or product printed on them and hang them up on the wall to show their loyalty. Others purchase them as gifts or souvenirs to remind themselves (and others) of the happy time they spent at their favourite holiday destination. And of course most people buy them to perform the mundane task of drying up.

Here we have a few tea towels (Dish towels to our American readers) from the sixties and beyond. Most of them seem to have escaped any dish drying action at the time. The Rolling Stones haven’t faded away, Dougal’s fur hasn’t worn away and there are no beer stains on the illustrated Harp lager lady.
