Pic: A relic of 'Dublin's Finest Laundry'

And a footnote in ‘Dublin’s All-Time Worst Business Naming Decisions’. Yes, it’s the Swastika Laundry.


Found by Reddit user Tadhg in a charity shop in Dublin, apparently. A relic of the Swastika Laundry in Ballsbridge which operated from 1912 to 1987.

You can read more about the Swastika Laundry in this excellent post on Come Here To Me! But really, the big question is: why didn't they change their name?

Answers in the comments please.
