RIP Wonder Bakery Columbus 1916-2009

The Wonder Bread bakery on N. 4th St. near E. 1st Avenue in Italian Village closed after decades of wonderful smells and a wicked cool neon sign. It was announced back in March that it would close later in the spring and indeed, the bakery's last day of operations was this past Saturday. The sign seems to have went dark prior to the closing of the bakery though, as I have not seen it lit up in weeks. I snapped this picture in the early evening while the building was still open and was not turned on. This picture, which looks as sad and dark as the now former employee's moods might be, was taken the early evening of Sun. 5/3. A link to the story of the bakery closing can be found here
