Mentioning Plano in the 1960's to a fellow DU'er got me looking for a pic

Jokingly mentioning that we occasionally shopped, laundered and perhaps grabbed a sandwich in a little town called Plano!
And there it was, the first pic on the link below: I recall being towed along in 1966 -8 or so with my mother doing laundry at that mat. my odd memory is asking mom "What's Speed Queen?" I was about 7 years old...LOL. I recall, to the best of my 60 years, this little strip was right along the street we used to take out of Richardson. (not I-75, but I think it joined up with it)
If the Rite Way cleaners sign was still up these days some would be stopping to look for a bowl of chicken Pho.
I got re-Californicated for work in 2004, but before then I never got the chance to re-tour this old area if I could even find it these days. Do any of these old buildings still exist? All I ever saw of Plano in recent years was fully new, gentrified.
I'm emailing my older brother who probably remembers more.

Plano was usually cut off the DFW inset or page on Tx maps at the time.

Then this one shows Plano as along the I-75:.
