☞ REMEMBER: Custom Paint at Carolyn Laundry

The major laundry service over in East Harlem at the early part of the last century had an army of wagons for deliveries which also had a well trained staff to help maintain them.  A photo from 1929 shows a uniformed worker custom painting a wagon and its logo in the building's garage which was at 111 East 128th Street. These delivery trucks were definitively part of the automobile age even though they still retained some of the old wagon aesthetic on the tale end.  Check out the front of the laundry building in our past post: LINK
