This is my maternal Grandmother, standing beside the laundry van she once drove. I'm guessing the picture was taken in the mid 1920's, as I did locate a copy of the 'National Federation of Launderers Ltd Handbook for 1921', which confirmed the name and phone number of the laundry, as shown on the van. I believe Nan was born in 1905, but have no idea of her age at the time of the picture. As a young boy I didn't believe the little old lady I knew had done something so exciting, until I saw the evidence!
