☞ REMEMBER: Carolyn Laundry on East 128th

A photo from 1929 shows the major Harlem laundry service located in East Harlem at the corner of 128th Street and Park Avenue.  This would have been a time where such services were still in use by the middle class and the delivery cars along with the drivers are all properly dressed to do so.  The building in the photo still remains today but the brownstones down the street are long gone.
