Item Description: Translate description
Great old advertising piece with two sides reading "Cushman's White Plains, NY". Measures 35" long, 20" wide and 19" high. M New York baker Nathan A. Cushman relocated to Portland in 1908. Upon arriving, he immediately began on the expansion of his thriving White Plains baking company to include a Portland factory. In White Plains, Cushman had been particularly successful in selling French-style breakfast rolls, and it was his intent to introduce this product to the Maine market. Cushman's Baking Company opened in January of 1915. The facility was located on the corner of Elm and Kennebec Streets, across from the then defunct Portland & Worcester Line railroad station. The factory was modeled after the state-of-the-art bakeries in New York City, and therefore was equipped with the most modern machinery, able to produce 1,800 perfectly baked loaves an hour. The loaves were then delivered fresh to the doors of customers using horse-drawn wagons that traveled throughout the city. NOTE: This item is PICK UP ONLY in Ellington, CT 06029 and must be retrieved within 10 days of auction end.
