The Wonder Bread factory, built in 1923, was once an industrial icon of Buffalo’s East Side. While it was in operation, the facility produced that classic midcentury staple, as well as Hostess brand snacks. The first floor held massive Wonder ovens, making the surrounding neighborhood smell faintly of bread.

The factory closed in 2004, and has sat empty ever since, in an ever-worsening state of decay. Around 2010 (the same year the building was listed for sale for $800,000), the letter “B” from the giant “Wonder Bread” sign at the top of the building mysteriously went missing. Some months later, the “N” followed, and later the “E.”


The factory remains abandoned today, with just enough fading letters intact to make out its former name.

I recall eating Wonderloaf bread here in the UK back in the 60's and 70's, but thankfully progressed to decent wholemeal loaves.
However, I've just discovered that Wonderloaf is still available. I'm just "wondering" :rolleyes: if the recipe came from the good old US of A?

Basilica of St Patrick - Fremantle , Western Australia - Roman Catholic Churches - 2018-01 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking [1].

The St Patrick’s Fremantle was established around 1850, the third Catholic Community in Western Australia after St Mary’s Cathedral Parish Perth and the Benedictine community of New Norcia. Till 1894 the parish was served mainly by Diocesan Priests with the exception of the 1850s when it was served by a number of Benedictines who each came for a short time.

Since 1894 the parish has been entrusted to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. It was their first foundation in Australia and they have now been responsible for its pastoral care for 102 years. -

It does not appear to be a heritage-listed building which is curious.

Karmaceuticals Apothecary by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Karma in the form of COVID-19 has, it seems come a visiting, as a walk past a few days after taking this photo suggests that the business is now closing or closed.

A bit disappointing if it has in fact not been successful as Fremantle is normally considered quite alternative and hence such a business would, you would, think have a good chance.

Arizona Public Service, Arizona's largest electrical-power utility company, has had a couple jet-turbine-powered generators in the Phoenix area to help with extreme-peak power demands.. The one in Tempe, on the east edge of Phoenix, was decommissioned years ago and is being dismantled. Here's what it looked like yesterday.

The way those worked seemed like a very wasteful way to produce power, maybe this was for the best.
