Looking Back: Janet Davis Dry Cleaners

Woodward Talk | Published May 6, 2014

Janet Davis opened Janet Davis Dry Cleaners in Berkley at the corner of Woodward Avenue and Larkmoor Boulevard in 1950.

When the dry cleaners first opened, it had the diagonal parking for customers that was common along Woodward in the mid-1950s.

The business is still at the same location today, but the building looks quite different, as it has been added onto twice in the past 64 years.

James Tong, with the Berkley Historical Museum, came across this photo while compiling it as part of “Images of America: Berkley,” which is available at the Berkley Public Library, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com.
