Brit Flick classic 'My beautiful Laundrette' was filmed hre

Location: 11 Wilcox Road, off Wandsworth Road, SW8

Description: Powders' launderette was featured in the British film 'My beautiful Laundrette'.

It was a Low Gear second hand store and has since changed hands on numerous occasions.

My Beautiful Laundrette is a 1985 British comedy-drama film directed by Stephen Frears from a screenplay by Hanif Kureishi. The story is set in London during the period when Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister of Britain, as shown through the complex and often comical relationships between members of the Asian and White community. The plot tackles many polemical issues, such as homosexuality, racism, and England's economic and political policy during the 1980s.
