Kids playing in sprinkler, Spang truck in rear
These men, who delivered stuff to the neighborhood, were almost like friends to some of the families. We got to know them by name and look forward to their arrival. One, who I remember particularly well, was the Spang Bakery man named Jack. He drove a red Twincoach brand bakery truck that looked like a box on four wheels. He also drove standing up. We knew he was coming, because he had a loud bell, which was sounded by stomping on a bell button with his left foot. That bell let everyone know he was there for special orders. He also had standing orders from some families. It was a special treat to buy a Spang donut from him.
