I asked my dad, he believes it was on Washington Ave.

In my 1964 Yellow Pages is listed:

Clover-Leaf Baking Co.
1127 Dublin
UN1-3131

That would be between Zimpel and Oak, one block off Carrollton. I did a google map search to find the location. If you go to the street view you can see a photo (it's a house now).

My Grandmother corrected me yesterday. It was the Clover Leaf Bakery. It was owned by two of my Great Grandmother's brothers.
Ross's Bakery that was on Metairie Rd. near Cleary was owned by the son of one of the brothers that owned Clover.

I am trying to find pictures of either one of these, as I am not finding anything with in the family. Guess no one really was into cameras in my family, mom always told me I was odd. :lol:

Mr Lake,
I told my father what your 1964 directory said, and he realized he was thinking of the Shamrock Bakery (he said clover, shamrock same thing :lol: )
He said the Shamrock was on Washington Ave by the railroad tracks. Your directory may have it listed, but he said it could have closed before my parents got married which was in 1960.

I am leaving the house in a minute, so I don't have time right now, but have you looked at the New Orleans Public Library's website? There are all kinds of random photos there.

I forgot about that...will go check it. Thanks

Edit: The only thing I could find was a picture of Oak St., but I will keep searching.
