Retro Laundromat

Plaza Laundromat, Maybank Highway, Charleston, S.C.
I drive by this retro looking laundromat most Fridays after my end of the week movie and each time I think "I need to get a picture of that one of these days". Today was the day. Isn't it cool?

It's the weekend, kids! Buckle up.

  1. No, but they do in the theater. Put your wash in and go to a movie.

  2. Looks like the aliens like it, too. Note their vehicle hovering overhead. ;)

    1. That alien piece is what I like. I think it needs turning around. It seems to face the wrong way. I'm surprised no hurricane has taken it out.

  3. Glad that I don't have to use these; more convenient at home.

  4. Is this the one at the Terrace? The alien headpiece is a newer addition, but this laundromat has seen many incarnations over the years!
    A piece of local lore here.

    1. It is the one by the Terrace. Cool! When was it added do you think?

  5. I liked Mike's comment about laundry today: "What's the big deal. You throw all the clothes in the washer, turn a couple of dials, then sit back and wait for it. If you wait long enough you don't even have to use the dryer. Bonus!"

    1. Washing machines are one of my favorite appliances. Dishwashers are another.
