Andersonville Swedish Bakery, 1992

My father grew up in Andersonville, and for him, Christmas included a visit to the Swedish Bakery. Customers came from all across the Midwest to purchase cardamon-laced coffee cakes and pastries, and the lines there were always long. You would pick a number and then go shopping for an hour or so, perhaps sample some glogg, before coming back to place your order.

This image of the bakery is from 1992, and is currently available on eBay:
