    I think it was in 1959 or very early 1960 when my folks were invited on a tour through the brand new Tasty Bread factory. To this day I can still remember the aroma of the fresh baked bread and the taste of the slice of bread I was given, buttered with real butter the slice was so thick my little hands could hardly hold its thickness.
    then twice since I have toured the MRS Baird's bread factory once in the 3rd grade and again 2 years later in the 7th grade yes I jumped grades a few times but neither time at the Baird's bread visits did the ambiance or the aroma even come close to matching that first visit.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Most likely the space is in case of accumulation. If the guy receiving the finished loaves has to go take a leak the conveyor fills up until he gets back... hopefully after thoroughly washing his hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Sorry, reverted to my Food Safety / Safety Manager role!

    Easy bet; when one of us sailors mentions the good old days, aren't thinking this far back.

    When viewing old stuff like this I usually think of the technology available at the time, and how great it was.
    Then I found this and was saddened.

    She's now a National Archeological site, artificial reef and a popular diving location. A much better fate than being sent to the breakers, I'd think.
