Eight Photographs of Hostess Bakery Workers.
[Toledo, Ohio: 1936].
Eight black & white photographs (13 x 18 cm.). A series of photographs of bakery workers posed in their sections at the Hostess plant in Toledo, Ohio. The plant was one of the showcase production facilities of Interstate Bakeries, with a daily output of as many as 250,000 loaves per day. Many of the photos are labeled "Hostess Cake Kitchen" which may have been a separate baking department within the larger Interstate facility. Some of the groups of bakers depicted include the Roll Department, Icing Belt, Second Shift, Wrapping Belt, Oven Roll Shift, and the Mixing Room. In very good condition, the photographs are not faded. Photographs 7 & 8 have pencil annotations to the verso, the names of the workers depicted, some of them crossed out.
