This film is about Patriothall Laundry in Eyre Terrace, Edinburgh. Built in 1904 it was recently demolished.

Please note: some of the images used are of Craigmillar Laundry and the old movie footage is of Castlebank Laundry, Glasgow, as featured in ‘IS WASHDAY WORTHWHILE?’
I would like to dedicate this short film to Deborah Levy. She is a writer whose work I find inspiring and meaningful. I am currently reading [again] one of her ‘memoirs’ The Cost of Living. It is a very special book.
