Grostenquin, France

Laundry and Dry Cleaning

The following detail has been extracted from a 1957 copy of the "Be a Good Canadian Overseas" booklet.

Dry cleaning may be done through French sources, but generally personnel use the modern dry cleaning and laundry plant located on the station where the quality of workmanship is good. Your clothes must be delivered to the laundy with a coat hangar.
