Jim Gay Laundry

The Jim Gay Laundry, located on the north side of New Gower Street, opened in the early 1920s. The business continued into the 1960s, at which time this section of New Gower Street was demolished to make way for the city's development plans. Taken in the early 1960s, this photograph also shows two other New Gower Street businesses: Marty's, a local restaurant chain, and Ray Chaytor, a butcher.
