Fulton Family Laundry


BGE-238.A – Fulton Family Laundry, 1706-1714 McHenry Street between South Mount and South Bruce Streets, ca. 1921.

In the days before every household had its own washer and dryer, many Baltimoreans depended on the services of companies like the Fulton Family Laundry. Up until the 1970s, it was common to see laundry trucks crisscrossing the city each morning to pick up and deliver clothes, linens, and towels.
