My great-grandfather, originally named Giovanni Silvestro, but was later known as John Sylvester, worked for Fischer, or Fisher Bread Company for many years. From what I understand, he worked as a delivery man before cars or trucks were in use. We have a picture of him or my other great-grandfather, John L. Koelble, also of Newark, standing in front of a horse drawn delivery wagon.

My father, who was a millright, worked at Fisher from time to time installing machinery.

My grandfather Antony Bates was head baker for Fisher bread for many years, I remember as a little boy picking him up with my Uncle John Ruggieri on Belmont ave. My grandfather never drove. I also remember going fishing on a party boat called the Victory 2nd which was docked on McCarter Highway behind Ronson with my grandfather and Frank Fisher, who was as nice a man as you will ever meet.

Hi,

Around the turn of the century, the Fischer family lived down the street (Camden St.) from mine. My great grandfather at that time had a bakery at 355 Camden St.

The story goes that Mrs. Fisher took in laundry to earn some money.
My family's bakery remained in a small store front until closing in the 1930's. By then the Fisher Bread Company was a major business. Probably had to do with the family's industriousness as reflected by Mrs. Fisher's hard work.

I remember their rye bread, and Pechter's, too. I'm not sure if Pechter's are still around or not.

Pechters Bakery was in Harrison. I think they are still there. You are right they had great rye bread.
