Mechanic Street Brasted Bakery

Sanborn-Perris Map of Mechanic Street 1898

The Brasted Bakery was located just across the street from the carriage shops and the lumber mills.  Workers would stop on their way home to purchase baked goods for their families and bread for their daily lunch boxes.  The Brasted Bakery was located on the lot where the current IU9 building driveway is located.

The stream under the foot bridge shown in the top photo is now diverted away from the IU-9 Building.
