The Product Menu Truck


This photo was taken on December 3, 2019 at 7:42 AM.

The location was the edge of the Georgetown Section of Washington DC.

The "Take It!” almost did not happen - as I had just walked out of one of my regular stops having had a pleasantly spirited conversation with some of the staff, when I noticed this truck stopped at the nearby intersection waiting for the light to change.  It took me a few seconds to realize I was looking at one of the most comprehensive photographic menu offerings on the side of a truck that I had ever seen.  Once comprehended - I reached for my camera and took it from its carrying case and snapped the photo just as the light changed and the truck started to move. Thus the slight blur to the photo.

I admire their fulfilled desire to show their "Goods" for I have always been of the impression that is what the end result of a Bakery are. I wonder if they survey to find out if this means of advertising has brought notice and thus sales.

Ah, the questions anything can bring.

Here is hoping forming questions can be an enjoyable process - even though there may be a strong chance, the answer may be difficult if not impossible to find.

Best wishes to each of you along with my thanks for joining me on some of my many musings.

    It looks like they serve a lot more than French Bread. Its basically a carbohydrate machine on wheels.

    One of the few things I absolutely cannot resist is the smell of hot fresh french bread when I go to the deli. I wonder if this truck smells like that as it drives down the street. I would not be able to keep myself from pulling into a deli and buying some if that truck drove by me smelling like that.

    I actually added a load of bread to my shopping list after seeing this. They say you should never go grocery shopping when hungry. Apparently the same can be said for making a shopping list, haha.
