Laundry memories, by Viv Newman by cqualmann

When I was a young child in Kensington (in the late 50s, early 60s), 
on my Nanny's day off, my mother used to give me a treat - take me 
to the local launderette to watch the washing go round; this kept 
me entertained for hours.  As our family's washing was sent to a 
laundry, being able to take washing to a launderette seemed 
wonderfully exotic. When I now use a launderette on holiday, 
I try to recapture that childhood sense of wonder, sadly, I must 
confess, unsuccessfully!
