Super story. I was born only a few years (1931) after Mr. Rohwedder invented his wonderful bread slicing machine and I grew up during the great depression. I remember how I used to love Wonder Bread's sliced white bread. I call it bailed fog now. This is great time to be alive and "Thank you Mr. Rohwedder".
This is the best thing since sliced bread... oh wait
"We live just north of Chillicothe, Missouri, the Home of Sliced Bread. I was interested that we are included in the article. I work in a HyVee store in Trenton, MO, and they still slice their own bread on a machine. It looks very old but still works for bread baked in the store. I can imagine how much time it saved housewives when they had to prepare lunches for their husbands and children. Most of them had plenty of other work to do during the time this was invented."
