"Troy Laundry is thought to have been originally established around 1905 by Rollin V. Ankeny and Bradford D. Baucus at the northeast corner of Republican St and Nob Hill. The business moved from the Nob Hill location to this building in 1927. By this time, the Troy Laundry was owned by John C. Hagen, who had bought the laundry in 1920. The Troy Laundry was one of many Seattle laundries, several of which were located in the South Lake Union/ Cascade neighborhood after the end of World War I. By 1948, the Troy Laundry plant was the largest laundry operation in the Pacific Northwest."
