In the first half of the last century it was still common to see ladies lining the still clear waters of Ciliwung river doing laundry. There was a public washing spot near the Passar Baroe bridge where laundresses gathered. So widespread was the laundry profession along the Ciliwung waterway that one ‘kampung’ was named after it - ‘Petojo Binatu’
