'-: i L00KIIIGJORWARD Guy Liggett Makes , a Few Comments : on the Devel opment of the Dry Clean ing Business -During' His Eighteen Years ' Connec tion With The Pantorium. Eighteen years ago today-I came to Omaha and began work at, The Pan torlum, whlth ' had', been started tha proceeding August' as a pressing' con cern for the care of men's clothes. . At that time the cleaning of clothes In gasoline was practically an ( un known business. Our first attempts at Dry Cleaning consisted "of soaHIhe the garments In a tub of gasoline, then brushing 'on "a table, "after "h"!cfi ' they were r'nsed In another, tub and hung In the air to dry. A very waste ful, dangerous and 'often unsatisfac tory method, but the' best and 'only one we knew of at -the time. 1 We didn't even havo soap that was soluble In gasoline; and such things as Washers, Extractors, Stills, Clarl flcrs. Glove Machines and Under ground Storage had never s been thought of. " ' ' .' ' As t: e Cleaning and Dyflnp business developed The Pantorlum was 'always first to dlsrsrd ' the Old and adopt the New.
