First Laundy List SJSA 1968-1969


Your laundry number is probably ingrained (definition; forming a part of the essence or inmost being) in your mind, and used for all sorts of things today. But how many of you still have clothing items with your laundry number sewn in them?

Over the years we have heard some great stories about laundry numbers, from girlfriends comparing the numbers sewn into their boyfriends underwear; and wondering if they had spent time behind bars,  to wives who thought their husbands were crazy when they are excited to see their laundry number flashing on a digital clock.

Send us your memories of the laundry number.
