Washing by Machinery
Guardians Instal a Fine New Laundry
This transformation cost the Guardians £7,000 but the laundry work is now carried out by 12 to 18 inmates working each day, with very little outside help. In future, as well as the washing for the Institution, that of the Cottage Homes will also be done here.
The building has been transformed by Messrs. Sharman and Moore (architects), Wellingborough, and Messrs. Marlowe and Alliott (engineers), Nottingham, on the instructions of the Laundry Committee, under the chairmanship of Mr. E. R. Ball, who secured the bulk of the machinery from the Kettering Laundry Co.’s sale.
