Exploring photos: Niagara Home Bakery
Exploring__Photos-Paul_and_John_Albrechtsan_Z

Literally everyone in town knew John and Paul Albrechtsan of the Niagara Home Bakery.

It was probably one of the most frequented stores in town. Up to the early 1960s, John would deliver bread and baked goods right to your door. Coming from Denmark, their father was the original baker. The store was eventually taken over by his sons. The recent passing of John leaves only one member of the family still living in town, Dianna, the youngest and only daughter. This composite picture shows John with the most famous long johns ever made and Paul holding an unsliced loaf of high boy bread, which would almost melt in your mouth.
