In the 1950s and 1960s most Australian homes had a Hills Hoist. The idea was first dreamt up in 1895 but only started being sold by Lance Hill in 1947, who built them in his backyard.
They became popular during the housing boom after the Second World War and families have been using them since and is considered an icon of Australian suburbia being affectionately coined the ‘Big metal tree’.
