One of Largest and Most Modern
Sicam Laundry Plants in South?
Occupies Two Floors and Has Up
to-Datc Sanitary Equipment?0.
H. Hulling8 Is Manager
The operation of a modern laundry
has been developed into a science so
great has become the demand for
plants which are run according to
the most sanitary principles, as well
as cn a basis of giving service.
With years of experience the Ban
ner Laundry at No. 909 Oronoco
Street has broken all records and has
established itself as one of the most
important plants in the city.
Under the management of Mr. 0.
tl. Hullings, who established the busi
ness in 1909, the Banner has devel
oped an extensive trade and patron
ige, which comes from all sections ?
)f the city and adjoining territory, J
shiphents of laundry being received i
and delivered by rail.
The plant has most complete mach
inery in every department, and par
:icular attention has been paid to the
?anitary arrangements in equipping
t for service.
Both floors of a brick building on
Dronoco Street are occupied by the
aundry, which has twenty employes
?nd uses four trucks in collecting and
s driven by electricity, and the cap
icity, of the Banner compares most
'avorably with any in this section.
The importance of the Banner
^aundry to the commercial develop
nent of Alexandria has been recog
nized in numerous ways, and the busi
ness it has developed has demons
rated the need for just such a plant
ind organization.
Mr. 0. H. Hullings, who came to
ho city in 1909 to establish the plant,
u:s had thirty years of practical ex
>erience in the laundry business and
:nows every angle thereof. He start
d on a small scale thirteen years ago,
nd has built up a business which not
?nly reflects the greatest credit on
lis management, but also speaks well
or the growth of Alexandria.
Mr. Hullings is a member of the
"hambcr of Commerce, and an active
ride-awake citizen. He believes in

Prominent Wholesale Groccr and
Produce Dealer Who Is Doing Much
to Make Alexandria Important Dis
tributing Point for Northern Vir
? V
The natural location of Alexandria
with its unsurpassed railroad con
nections and highway terminals offers
peculiar advantages for its develop
ment as a distributing center.
This advantage has not been de
veloped as rapidly as it should, many
of its citizens believe, but with such
men as Mr. C. F. Coffey active in this
direction, it will not be long before
the city assumes its proper place as
the most important distributing cen
ter in Virginia.
Mr. Coffey established an exten
sive wholesale grocery and produce
business at the corner of Lee and
King Streets two years ago, and by
modern methods and the promulga
tion of aggrssive ideas, he has built
up a business which is not only highly
creditable to himself personally but
is doing much to advertise the dis
tributing facilities of Alexandria.
Mr. Coffey specializes in produce
and handles large quanities of eggs,
dressed foul, butter, vegetables, fruit
etc. His territory includes Fairfax,
Arlington and as far as Orange
County, and a salesman is constantly
an the road working for the firm.
His equipment includes two auto
mobile delivery trucks and two tour
ing cars.
Mr. Coffey is a member of the
Chamber of Commerce, and is act
ively interested in civic affairs and
public improvement. He is a hearty
supporter of the King Street White
Way, and is confident that Alexandria
can become a great distributing center
by cooperation and the adoption of
modern methods.
1 When Major General Edward
Braddock, with George Washington
as his aid de camp, left Alexandria
in April, 1755, with a little army
of regulars and provincials on his
ill-fated expedition against the
French and Indian allies, he left
behind a number of cannon that
were later planted, with muzzles'
pointing skyward, at the entrances
I to several of the principal alleys of
i the city of Alexandria. A few years
jago these cannon were turned over
I to the Colonial Dames, who intended
,k to use them to mark what is known
as the "Braddock trail." For this
purpose one has been erected at
Winchester, Va, and another at the
juncture of Russell road and Mush
pot, or Braddock road, on Braddock
Heights, in the northwestern sec
tion of Alexandria.
A third cannon was made the
central part of a public drinking
