The Chow Keong Hand Laundry is probably the last of the hand laundries in Toronto. It was opened on Avenue Road in 1946 by Chow Keong and is run today by his son Dennis who is in his eighties and Dennis's wife. If you bring your clothes in they are all carefully hand-washed and ironed and ready to be picked up several days later. I took this on a Sunday afternoon and the laundry was closed but I could see Dennis in there working away. And of course there are lovely bonsai plants in the window!
