In Topic: Kleinschmidt's Bakery

In the 1940s, Kleinschmidt's was located in the 3000 block of Hemphill
next to the Safeway Store and across the street from the Berry (White) Theater.
In the early morning their front door was open with a locked screen door,
but they were nice enough to open up to provide the Star-Telegram boys a
pastry after they finished delivering the morning paper.

Yea, it was down near the end of the strip near the Rockyfeller.

I see Larry K some as he lives near the old place that was on Hemphill. He regularly attents the flea mkt at the cattle barn at WRC on Sats and Suns.

I can remember as a kid my Mother taking me to that bakery every birthday in the 50's. We would drive all the way from Richland Hills to West 7th Street. I would always get a chocolate cake with white icing with cowboys and Indians on top or a circus scene or race cars. Then we would stop at Ashburn's ice cream on East rosedale or Denton Hwy to get those delicious neopolitan{not sure about the spelling} bars. What a birthday it was.
Every time my kids birthday came around I wished I could have shared those same moments with them. Another treasure that is gone forever.

I know John Kennedy got one the day before he was killed, and that Alan Bean and his Apollo 12 astronaut buddies after their successful moon adventure, but who else was accorded that honor In Fort Worth?

I believe Douglas McAuthur had one when I was about 5 YO in 1949.
