Exterior of New Copperthite Pie Bakery
At 3289 til Street.
The modern pie bakery just completed by the Copperthite Pie
Baking Company, at 3289 M St. N. W., is a marvel of cleanliness
and brightness. The big three-story brick structure, fronting tor a
hundred feet on M St., and extending back for a distance of one
hundred and twenty-five feet, is absolutely free from dark corners
that harbor dust. From the storeroom stocked with tempting fruits,
fillings, flavorings, and other needful ingredients for the concoction
of delicious pies, clean down to. the delivery room, where the pies
are brought hot and crisp from the ovens to be distributed to the pie
hungry, the building is flooded with sunshine and fresh air.
The Copperthite establishment may well be called the Sun
light Bakery. The broad skylight on the third floor floods the whole
building, by means of light wells, with sunlight. It floods every
corner of the building and shows at a glance the cleanliness of every
part of it. The white walls 'and shining floors give an indication of
painstaking thoroughness in the effort to produce absolutely clean
and sanitary conditions. In fact, throughout the whole structure it
is quite evident that every precaution has been taken and every
device installed that insures the production of Copperthite pies
under as perfect conditions as would maintain in the kitchens of the
There is no bakery in the Capital which can surpass the Copper
thite establishment in this important matter of having clean, sani
tary conditions for the mixing and baking of pies. It insures whole
scmeness and purity two items which the modern housewife insists
The Copperthite Pie Bakery has expended large amounts
of money for the installation of the newest and best machinery and
utensils used in the preparation and baking of pies.
The ovens will bake something like a hundred pies every ten
minutes twenty pies a minute.
Distributed WhUe Hot
From the ovens the pies are brought to the delivery room and
loaded on the wagons to be sent all over the city to the stores and
lunchrooms. They leave the bakery with the oven crispness still in
them and can be bought at hundreds of grocery stores an hour after
The facilities of the Copperthite Company for reaching the con

grandparents can eat and enjoy, safe in the knowledge thattHey will
agree with them.

Mr. Copperthite is one of those old-fashioned business men who
believe in living up to appearances, His pies look good, and he
makes sure that they are as goo.d as 4hey look. He personally in
spects every shipment of flour, sugar, fruits, and other ingredients
that arrive in his stockroom, and scrutinizes them carefully to make

The Copperthite Bakery Open to
the Public at All Times
Mr. Henry Copperthite, in talking to a Times representative
the other day, said: "I should like to have everybody in Washing
ton visit this bakery and go through it and examine-it the way you
. have done. I am a bit proud of- this big, bright bakery, and I am
vain enough to want to 'show off.' I know mere is not a. cleaner,
more sanitary, brighter bakery in the city, and I know that if the
reople of Washington knew it also, they would appreciate thesuper
iority of Copperthite pies. This bakery will be open for visitors
and arrangements may be made afthe office for inspection trips at
any time. Anyone is at liberty to come in and watch us prepare a
baking, from the time -we sieve the flour up to the time the finished,
pies are placed in the wagons. We will always welcome visitors,
for we know that such inspections will rebound to out credit."
It is, indeed, a trip that is well worth taking, for the baking of
pies in this modern bakery is an interesting thing to witness.

The utensils in which are compounded the luscious fillings are
of porcelain, insuring an absolute freedom from any "tinney" taste,
and also insuring absolute cleanliness. The dough troughs, in which
the crisp crusts are mixed and kneajed are as spick and span as new
pins. The kneading tables where the dough is rolled out in sheets
for the crusts would take a prize for cleanliness in "Spotless Town"
itself. The pie trimmer, which tamps the top crust on and trims
the edges, is a modern machine, which does the whole operation
at one twist and eliminates the handling of the pies.
The two gigantic ovens are of the very latest design, with auto
matic temperature indicators and regulators, which control the heat
. and keep a steady, even temperature, baking the pies thoroughly
and crisping the crusts to a nicety. The Copperthite pies, will al
ways be of the same high standard of goodness. There is not a
chance for one batch to be different from the others. The same
conditions will always maintain and make for a uniform and reliable

can be served in as fresh and appetizing a condition as though they
had been baked in the housewife's kitchen.
The wagons are housed in a brick shed adjoining the bakery
and can be loaded before the horses arrive. The horses are not
stabled around the bakery, for the reason that the management
wants to have the outside as well as the inside of the bakery clean
and sanitary. There is no dirt of any kind in the vicinity of the big
Mr. Henry Copperthite Pioneer
Mr. Henry Copperthite, president of the Copperthite Pie Bak
ing Company, is well known as a baker of good pies. He started
and developed one of the largest pie baking concerns in the city
many years ago. He subsequently sold this old bakery, and for
several years has not been actively engaged in the business. With
the opening of this new establishment in Georgetown, Mr. Copper
thite returns to his occupation of producing toothsome, wholesome
pics. There is .perhaps no man in Washington who can bring more
fame to the pie baking business than can Mr. Copperthite. He
knows how to bake good pies, and he knows how to make those pics
good, wholesome food, that young and old, from the tiny tot to its
sure that they come up to the standard that he insists upon.
He will not "take a chance," there must be no room for doubt,
if the ingredients are not the best the market affords they are not
good enough to find their way into Copperthite pies.
To look into the spacious stockroom, clean as a Dutch kitchen,
stored with toothsome fruits and fillings, is to make one's mouth
water. Everything looks so wholesome and appetizing that it is no
wonder Copperthite pies are delicious.
The Secret of the Goodness of
The secret of the superiority of Copperthite pies is easily un
derstood. It is just the combination of pure, fresh ingredients skill
fully prepared by master bakers, baked to a nicety with as much
care as "mother" would bestow upon them, and delivered wjth all
their freshness and oven crispness still in them. They are the re
sult of a conscientious endeavor to produce wholesome, satisfying
toothsome pies, and they show it.
The delicious crispness of home-made crust, generously filled
with delicious fruits, with the tang of real freshness still in them,
make a combination that fairly melts in the mouth and always

sections of the Capital City. Every household can enjoy their
melting deliciousness, for the grocery stores all over the city will

both the taste and the wholesomeness. One bite will prove the
former, and the latter no one can doubt who knows the condition
