Kenwood: Leveson Cleaners, March 1967.

Another speck of dust: A receipt for cleaning services pertaining to the month of February 1967 at Kenwood. Not cheap, either. Whether Dot Jarlett was employed under the auspices of Leveson Cleaners, Weybridge, or whether this refers to additional services, I don't know. I'd bet that at least some of these charges relate to cat shit, though.


  1. isn't this for laundry or dry cleaning?

  2. Could be. But that's a lot of dry cleaning/laundry if so - around £300/$480 worth by today's standards!

  3. 21 pounds, 19 shillings and 6 pence is not a lot...

  4. Well, £1 then is the equivalent of £13 or £14 now, which is quite a lot. But who knows? Not me.

  5. Leveson Cleaners are still there and they`re Carpet Curtain and Upholstery cleaners
