Sweet summer treats II
Another look at A. E. Gamble — Arthur Earnest Gamble's bakery shop in the early 1900s.
“Aunt Jessie,” Gamble's eldest sister, stands at the ready to serve freshly baked crusty bread, turnovers, and other sweet treats. The emporium, at 1252 St. Clair Avenue West in Toronto, looked like a delightful place to have lunch or to buy take-outs for later.
Sadly the bakery is no longer there. However, you can read more about A.E. Gamble, and see an exterior shot of the bakery, in the June/July 2009 issue of The Beaver – Album.
Edward Ernest Gamble, from Innisfil, Ontario, the grandson of Arthur Gamble, sent in these two great pictures.
