Amey’s laundry was situated on the west side of Portswood Road, just north-east of the junction with Osborne Road. It was established in c.1890 by William Amey who lived in a nearby house named Canford. The Laundry had contracts with local hospitals, wealthy yachtsmen and ocean-going shipping lines. Its 60ft tower was a familiar landmark in Portswood for over seventy years, until demolition in 1985. The laundry closed in 1974, the premises thereafter let to a variety of businesses. The tower was demolished in 1985.
