1871 Bread Factory

Over the years I've heard people think that there weren't manufactured goods in America until the late 19th Century. This is not the case. Today's post is a picture from the Evening Telegraph a Philadelphia, PA newspaper dated March, 11, 1871. In the picture you'll see a sketch of the interior of a bread bakery. You'll notice on the right hand side a table for kneading the bread, on the center table you'll see lots of loaves of bread. You'll also note a lot of pulleys and belts to move the baking pans through the ovens as well as mixing the dough. It's a great picture of an example of some of the earlier factories in this country.
