The Sycamore Laundry Had to Close Down for Awhile Until Parts Are Obtained

From the May 2, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"C.W. Buress, of the Sycamore laundry, while apparently having more than his share of troubles in securing necessary repair parts for the boiler and other machinery at the place, has every hope of being able to resume business this coming week.

"The proprietor was obligated to close the place this week until replacements could be made, and the parts necessary were difficult to obtain anywhere because of priorities."

And, of course, the "priorities" were the war effort.
