Painted in the Helms Bakery company colors of ivory and medium blue, these vehicles were used throughout Southern California from 1931 to 1969 for door-to-door bakery deliveries. Wooden drawers in the back of the truck were stocked with fresh donuts, cookies and pastries, while the center section carried dozens of loaves of freshly-baked bread. “Daily at Your Door” was the Helms Bakery motto.
