Lost WindsorOld PhotographsReader Submission

Royal Yeast Cakes

Today’s picture is a reader submission, from a reader named Jeannette, who came across this photo at her mother’s house.

The sign on the fence reads “Royal Yeast Cakes”, but I’m not sure if it was a sign or merely advertising. Her mother who is in her 80’s thought the building may have been from her old neighbourhood where she grew up around the Cadillac/Wyandotte area.

Through the magic of Google, it would appear that Royal Yeast Cakes were produced by the Gilette Corporation, likely not made here.

If it looks familiar to anyone, or any detectives out there, I would love to hear your thoughts, I would guess about 1910 for a date on this…
