Royal Bakery, 1917

The Royal Bakery provided Kleen-Maid Bread and other baked goods from the northwest corner of NW 11th and Everett. This photo has a couple of penned arrows pointing what appear to be structural flaws in the building.

    I like the awning that goes around the telephone post. Is the building still standing?

    Google Earth shows three single story and one one and 1/2 story structures still extant at this intersection. Three of them could be this building if it was heavily renovated over time.

    Love the advertisement! This was the era when every food manufacturer stressed how “clean” and “pure” their food was. A ‘natural’ (heh) reaction to the food safety scares, scandals and abuses which occurred during the late 19th / early-20th centuries.

    Can anybody make out what the lettering along the right side of the building says? It’s not Royal Bakery. I can make out “The Home Of (something-or-other)”. Doesn’t look like a K (for Kleen-Maid) is the first letter following the “Of” to me, either?

    I *think* the next word is Table…

  5. Jim Says:

    I think the next word is “the.” As in “The Home of: the…”

    Hurts my eyes to even try anymore…
