    Do you have any information about this laundry photo? My great great grandparents, Fred & Abbie Weaver, had a laundry in Eureka from about 1880 to 1925 and wonder if this could have been their business which was on the corner of First and F streets, at 513 F Street, I believe it was across the historic Weaver Building.
    Any further information you have would be helpful.

      I’m afraid I usually post all the info I can find and/or link to more info if it exists.
      If I find more I’ll let you know (and I apologize for the neglected blog/long-awaited reply).
