North St.Pic of the Week 03-08-12
Paul Ashton identified this picture. he says, "I remember the coffee shop being Irene's (great fried chicken) and the garage door was the entrance to, I believe, Doc Lacey's car wash. " We also heard from Cheryl Zudin who said, "The Picture of "Joe's Laundrette" on North Street, was my father's business, Joseph Udin from Lebanon, CT. He ran this business from around 1955 until the coin-op laundry put him out of the business around 1965. My father work 7 days a week doing people's laundry. He would wash, dry, fold and package each person's laundry like it was his own. He took pride in his business. My mother, Sonny and sister, Michelle who was 3 years old, when it first opened, used to be there working most days along side my dad."
