Although you can no longer wash your clothes here, the enamel sign for the Sunlight Laundry still brightens up Pimlico Road. 

The company was founded in 1900, and expanded through the city until 1928 when it merged with a competitor. Now called Sunlight and Western, it became a national business; there was a further change in the 1960s when as National Sunlight Laundries its focus switched from the domestic market to professional clients such as hotels and factories. It is still operating today, and provides laundry services to hospitals as well as businesses.
