The decline of the launderette by cqualmann

There’s this launderette on Mare Street or maybe it’s still Cambridge Heath Road, and I never went there but I always used to drive past in the bus.  And I noticed how there’s a line of 10 washing machines, or may be two lines, I can’t remember, but it was quite big.  And some of them would always have this little paper on them saying out of order, not working, out of order.  Every time I went past there would be more, and in the end all of them had this sad little out of order sign – there was like 20 washing machines at least – all out of order. Now it’s closed.
