Last Remaining Chinese Laundries

Here is some visual evidence in L. A. of the disappearance of once ubiquitous “Chinese laundries” that could be found in virtually every town in the country . The Kimball Chinese laundry in Temple City at 9424 Las Tunas, Temple City, still has its sign (left image) but in 2011, the storefront no longer appears to be a laundry (right image).  Similarly, the second photo of the Wong Wing Laundry at 8372 Third St., Los Angeles shown in the left hand frame in 2010 was replaced sometime in 2011 by a women’s clothing shop as shown in the right hand frame.
