Greenwood Electric Bakery uncovered

According to “Seattle’s Greenwood-Phinney Neighborhood,” by Ted Pedersen, the bakery opened in 1928.

Update: This is what the sign looked like a few hours later when it was completely uncovered:

If you blinked, you missed it. Just a few hours after that, it was covered again by new plywood.
