Swan Cleaners

I pass the Swan Cleaners on Washington St. in Brighton everytime I bring my clothes to Step Up Laundry. I get a kick out of all the signage they use, but in particular, how many different swan logos they have.

I did a quick Google search and was a bit disappointed to find that there are swan-themed dry cleaners all over the place, including a similar looking chain in Ohio. Loren has brought our dry cleaning there on a number of occasions. The guy that runs the place is more of your typical motorcycle dude—large stature, complete with tattoos. She says he's nice, and my suit always comes back nicely pressed.

When did swans become synonymous with dry cleaning?
