The Terry Bakery Sign
…the sign was missing the last time I was on Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti, but I think I heard it was going in for renovations. I hope, because, great.
I was thinking at first that the sign depicts a giant rolling pin wielded by ordinary human bakers, but then you look in the window of the Terry Bakery, cruelly, jarringly cluttered-decorated? with 67 completely empty cake stands, like it’s some kind of a… cake stand store instead of a bakery… it becomes evident that they must, indeed, employ tiny, tiny bakers, as their meager stock of crullers & fritters is very small indeed, and takes up in total only about one sixteenth of the giant 1960’s glass bakery display case.
