View Full Version : Request for Steely

I have a request for your knowledge. I'm looking for input as to what turn of the century or earlier (1900 or before) bakers would wear. The bistro I'm working at is doing a 1890 week, as that is when the building was built, and it would be cool to have something to show, and I keep coming up with nothing.
I was hoping you had something on your "files" or could help me out.

From a bakers Catalog 1907.
Lyons bakery 1900
and if you want to go back to the 1629 you have to get a horn.

well, let us try this again. The one with all the steam locomotive looking ovens is a German field bakery and the engraving I do believe is a Dutch bakery from 1694, and of course the cute bakery girl.

Most of the bakeries I've worked in we wore white or tan t-shirts, and I still do most days. But these pictures are really interesting. Thanks again. My google skills are not up to snuff these days
