Auburn Brite Speed-E-Queen Laundry

When we went to the Auburn Cord Duesenburg Festival in Auburn, IN a few weeks ago on the way back to where we parked I spotted this old-time laundromat at looked like a flashback to the 1970’s.   Although no one was there, thankfully it was open and I was able to snap these pictures.

I believe it was locates at the corner of 6th and Jackson Street in Auburn, IN.  It sort of reminds me of a smaller version of the laundromat we used to have in Warren, IN.

The folding table is the same color that was popular back in the late 60’s/early ’70’s.

The chairs and basket book like the are from the same late 60’s/early 70’s era.

This Olive Green folding table definitely looks 1970’s.

This too looks to be from the early 1970’s except I think it was 10cents instead of 75 cents for a small washer load worth of laundry detergent or fabric softener.

I remember this too from the early 70’s, but I think it was a dime and quarter way back then.  If you had to carry your laundry very far, it was totally worth paying extra for the drawstring.

These larger washers were in a separate room off to the left.   This is when it struck me this would be a great location to shoot a horror movie.

This is off to the left of the large washers:  more vintage/retro chairs.

These two doors to the left and right between the two room cinched it for me that location would be perfect for low budget horror flick, but with a padlock on the outside of the one on the left.

This door on the right would be perfect for the protagonist, be it a genetically modified being, a ghost, an alien, or just a creepy dude, or perhaps a combination,  could watch for potential victims of it malevolent desires from the mail slot.
