Steam Laundry, Yau Ma Tei [c.1905-????]

Current condition: 
Demolished / No longer exists
Date Place completed: 
c.1905-12-12 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

The steam laundry was located on IL 1157, to the east of the Orient Tobacco Factory and on the (northern) corner of Dundas St and Kwong Wa St, Yau Ma Tei. It is shown on the 1920 Kowloon map, and possibly also the 1952 map.

The laundry is referred to in the 1906 Public Works Report (at 19), as having sustained damage/partial collapse as a result of the typhoon on 18 September 1906. The construction date is not yet known, so 1905 is an estimate.
