Travelling back in time
Since I'm a full blown salaryman, I use a fair amount of business shirts per week, to be more precise, I can say that I use business shirts basically every day. Since ironing is not one of my favorite ways to pass the time, this means that I have a pretty large amount of shirts that I take to the dry cleaner when I get around to it (which can be anything between two weeks and two months from the previous time).
I do really like my local mom and pop dry cleaning shop, run by a couple somewhere in their 70's, always friendly, knows my name and allow me to pay when I get around to it in case I forgot to bring enough money some time.
One of my favorite things is by the counter where they have placed a radio (that always is on) and an old clock. The radio probably was probably hot in the 1950's and the clock probably was fashionable in the early 1970's. So I got my shirts laundered and getting in the store almost feels like a little time travel trip! Good stuff and check the picture to experience this yourself.
