The Girl from the Bakery: Her Story Proves the American Dream (Paperback)
Most of this book was written by Loretta Betke Greeley, the above author's wife, when she was still alive. Hence the Frontispiece "Her Story." She describes her life from birth in 1928 to retirement in 1993 with emphasis on her early life when her parents were running a bakery in the Ridgewood Section of Queens, NY. She provides a very detailed and instructive section on the incredible activities that are required to have a successful bakeshop. She goes on to describe her apartment which will be interesting to so many people now living in single-family homes. Her delightful times at the beaches in New York City during the 1930's and 40's, and her fascination with dolls will also be of historical interest. Her notes on a "Three-Generational" Household and on Retirement round out her life story.
