This image, obtained from the archives of the Oneida County Clerk is a reproduction of an advertisement for Joseph F. Lochner’s bakery in Utica, New York. I have spent a lot of time look at Lochner photos, and I have NEVER before seen this image. I think the Harlan Institute unearthed it form the bellows of the archives in Utica. I am just ecstatic. This advertisement will form the centerpiece of our chapter on Economic Liberties in the forthcoming book, Constitutional Places, Constitutional Faces. We are just ecstatic at this amazing find.
According to the ad, Lochner’s Home Bakery “is one of the oldest and most reliable bakeries in Central New York. We pride ourself on Uniformity, Purity, Cleanliness.” If you ask me, I bet they made some real “healthful” bread. But I wonder what their hours were like?
