David Drasdo Launderama 1

A series of photographs documenting the slowly disappearing world of the launderette.

David Drasdo spent the last 18 months travelling around Hull, Scarborough, Pontefract and Castleford to photograph the disappearing world of the traditional launderette.

Many have gone over the last few years or have been modernised and given names like “Bubbles” or “Suds”, but the ones that David was interested in are the ones that have remained unchanged for years.

David finds that that traditional launderettes are friendly places, devoid of flat-screen televisions and iPods. They are places where people not only go to do their washing, but they also go to socialise. He finds that they are one of the few places remaining that still have a community spirit.

We hope the images in this exhibition reflect David’s observations and bring back a few memories.
