Bakers and Baking in Massachusetts Including the Flour, Baking Supply and Kindred Interests from 1620 to 1909
Arthur W. Brayley
This book has a thorough and detailed description of all bakers in Massachusetts from the first settlers through 1909. Much of the information here, if still surviving, is very difficult to obtain. This is an invaluable resource for those interested in baking, unions, and labor practices in early New England. Included in this book is a detailed description of Kasanoff’s, the leading 20th century Jewish bakery in Boston as well as a photo of David Kasanoff, its proprietor.
