Camperdown Elm, Albion Michigan
Legend of Model Laundry - Albion, Michigan

Model Laundry, located at 203 W Erie Street, in Albion Michigan, became the “Home Laundry” in 1957.

This business served the community and the college for many years and was removed to make way for a Consumer’s Power building. There was news about a horse trade argument related to the manager of Model Laundry in 1907.

In 1913, the Consumers Power building next door was struck by lightning and caught fire. The live high tension wires prevented firemen from dousing the building with water. Local accounts stated that as late as 10 o’clock that evening, flames were still lighting up the sky, and explosions were frequent.

The fire department devoted its energies to saving the wooden Model Laundry next door, and were successful in that endeavor. The fire caused an estimated $100,000 in damage. This scene was around 1910.
