It was the London Laundry on Stoney Stanton Road.

Hi all, I believe that the company was a hotchpotch amalgamation of London Dry Cleaning & Kensington Laundry (originally London based companies) who spread their business all over the home counties as far as roughly the A5. They had businesses in Birmingham, but the Birmingham Coop swallowed that operation up just after the war.

Thanks Philip. Fancy me having to be told the origin of the London Laundry Co after all these years. It really is an education on the forum, who knows what trivia you learn. Wave

I have an old laundry box which bears the legand 'Property of The London Laundry Coventry' and inside the lid a label from the makers 'The Enfield Box C., Ltd.' which guarantees the box to 'remain good and sound for FOUR YEARS from the date of delivery'.

Just a gentle reminder, as this thread has been revisited, that its creator, Peter Walduck, sadly passed away in 2012 Sad

Just been watching the Antiques Road Trip on TV and Christina Trevanion purchased a box with London Laundry (Coventry) Ltd on it she paid £15 and it sold for £18. Thumbs up
