Launderette?
I bet these were places for a good gossip.
Glad to know these still exist and are still used.

Great place for gossip indeed. I recall them in Portugal so many years ago. Glad you caught that. And the house there: fabulous!

There are lots of these in southern France and even one a short walk from my house here in Normandy. In French they're called "lavoirs".

So basic, but so endearing - a place to gather and exchange ideas.
We still have them here in France.
