Inside the bakery store c. unknown

Otto and Emma Hartung opened a bakery on Sycamore Street in Lakeside about 1914. Charles and Lola Cole managed the store. At that time the bakery products were baked by the Hartungs at their bakery on 5th Avenue in San Diego and shipped daily to Lakeside on the railroad. In 1915 the sold the San Diego Bakery, had a brick oven built in back of the Sycamore Street Bakery and built a roomy and comfortable tent house next door and moved to Lakeside.

In 1918 Samuel and Susie Dent bought the bakery. At this time they they were also running a bakery at Main and Magnolia in El Cajon.

A house and garage was built in 1925 next door to the bakery on Sycamore Street. A Mexican Restaurant now occupies the old bakery building. The house and the old brick oven may be seen on Lakeshore Drive across from Leo's Pharmacy.
