The picture of Stevensons laundry van is dated 1966.
Their ad below it is from 1970.
During this period, their main base was at 222 Hilltown, but by 1974 that address disappeared and their branch at 173 Perth Road then became the main hub.
My uncle used to drive a Stevensons van in the early/mid 60's era and so as a consequence, I've had a hurl in one!


  1. That was indeed a vintage vehicle. So this van roamed around as a mobile laundry service during the 60's? That's so amazing! You won't see laundry vans nowadays, and that makes this even more impressive.

  2. great picture of laundry van I know all these vans very well as my dad jim samson was transport manager for stevensons even from the days of the horse van I am his son Ian Samson

  3. Any idea what the last horse was named.. my wife's grandfather David Bell was the driver
