SAN LEANDRO STEAM AND FRENCH LAUNDRY COMPANY
For more than twenty years the people of San Leandro have patronized the Mirande laundry, now operated under the name of the San Leandro Steam and French Laundry Company, and the fact that during these years the business of the establishment has enjoyed a steady and continuous growth is sufficient evidence of the high quality of the work turned out. This business was established here in 1905 by J. B. Mirande, who is a native of France, from which country he came to th United States in young manhood. He opened the French Laundry, which, throng his painstaking efforts and careful management, proved a successful venturc and as he prospered he added to the equipment, keeping always in view the f ac that satisfactory service should be the first consideration. In 1924 he erected the present building at 251 Ward street, the first floor of which is occupied by the laundry, while he utilizes the upper floor for residence. purposes. After carrying the business on alone for many years, he took his two older sons into partnership and the enterprise is now largely operated by them. They do a general laundry business, though specializing in gentlemen's and fancy hand work, rough and dry wash and hotel work. The laundry is sanitary in every respect and the business is operated along modern and up to date lines.

In 1901, in San Francisco, Mr. Mirande was united in marriage to Miss Anna Hauret, also a native of France, and they now have three sons: Frank A., born July 12, 1903; Lucien R., June 13, 1904; and Alfred George, April 13; 1921. The sons have received their educational training in the public schools of San Leandr and the two first named are now devoting their efforts to the laundry, in the management of which they have shown sound judgment and great energy. Mr. Mirando is a republican in his political views and is a loyal and devoted citizen of his adopted country, winning a high place in the esteem and good will of his fellowmen. Frank Mirande is a member of the Independent Order of Foresters and he and his brother are deservedly popular throughout their community.
