Notes The bakery at 95 Washington Street is called both "Bakeshop" and "Bake Shop" on this item as well as seen in the business facade signage. Formerly called Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop.

The centennial being celebrated was NOT the 100th anniversary of the founding of Carlo's, but the fact that a bakery had been at this address for a century (earliest established name is Wordelmann's Bakery; later Schoning's City Hall Bake Shop.) Carlo's was established circa 1918.
