Music was always piped around the Laundry, usually from IW Radio. It was generally turned up though to drown out Rose's dulcet tones. x

The Dryers


 

The Dryers
This scene of the ducting and fluff was all that remained as the tumble dryers had already been removed. A poignant moment that shows the end of Whitecroft Laundry!
