Clothes Hanger Patent- Historic Laundry Room Patents Series
As immersed as we are in our technology-centered world, it is worthwhile to consider that practically every piece of technology you've ever used, at some point in history, didn't exist. And while it's relatively easy to imagine a day before Facebook, it's surprising how new some of the things are that you take completely for granted.
For example, this patent for the lowly coat hanger with an integrated pants bar was patented in 1924. Before that, keeping the right coat with the right pants was something people worried about. Simple solution to a real problem, and one you probably used every day. Until Business Casual happened, and now no one wears suits anymore.
This would look fantastic in a Craftsman or Rustic-themed room, and would really appeal to engineers, technicians, scientists, inventors or anyone with a sense of history.
