Steam Laundry

Penzance Sanitary Steam Laundry, 1927; next door down from St Michael's Housing, New Street. My aunt worked here, in between being domestic. They also did colour dying here. Note the short stools to aid those of lower stature. Baskets everywhere, which were made in Newlyn and Penzance.

My first wife used to work here before we were married, mind you that was 1962!!!
 
Used to go in there as an apprentice in the 60 s, until I got used to them the women used to scare me sh*tless!!
