Description

Plastic carrier bag from Grodzinski's bakery.

Bakers Harris and Judith Grodzinski joined many members of the Jewish community in TsaristLithuania in migrating westward from Vilnius in 1888. They hired kosher ovens in East London and began baking bilkelekh.

The business was passed on through generations of the family. In the early 1930s a second location was opened at 91 Dunsmure Road, Stamford Hill, to which baking was moved. By the mid-1960s Grodzinski was the largest kosher bakery in Europe.
