  • Description

    A drive-in service is one of the many new features of a Laundryette at Hounslow, near London -- which is the same kind of thing as the popular laundrette only more so. It incorporates various types of service -- a do-it-yourself-wash and spin-dry; a dry-fold; a fully-finished laundry service and an express service in which shirts or suits can be cleaned and pressed in three hours.

    One of the novelties that will appeal to the harassed housewife is the amusement that is provided for the very young; and mother is the osceteris. This certainly is a wonderful age that we live in. It's life made easy...so different from the time when mother spent all day Monday bending over the wash-tub -- so worn out she couldn't raise enough energy to kiss the milkman. But now -- after four cups of coffee -- she's simply overflowing with good-humour and froth.

    That's right -- don't forget the little bairn.

    Then she gathers up her clean linen and goes off home to wash the car.

    The next customer was a business man in a hurry. For one ghastly moment the lady assistant thought he was going to take a bath.

    But it turned out that his secretary noticed that he'd been osting egg for breakfast, so he popped in here between appointment to have his shirt unscrambled.

    Something seems to have gone a ??? wrong here. She can't expect him to put it on wrapped in a cellophane bag. But all's ??? that ??? well. His shirt is clean and he returns home looking as if he hadn't done a stroke ??? day.
