A leased commercial laundry facility located at 1148 Harrison Street, San Francisco, California. It was operated by Quartermaster Laundry Detachment, 1927th Service Command Unit (Presidio of San Francisco Station Complement). It provided laundry service to Army activities at the Presidio of San Francisco and the surrounding metropolitan area. The facility was aquired by the War Department through condemnation proceedings against the Metropollitan Laundry Company, Ltd. in 1943. Very little else is known about this installation.
