Fortune Cookie Production at Benkyodo, San Francisco - ca 1914-1941 - WWII - 1946-1958


Photo-montage of the Sembei baking grills opening and closing.

 With a single hand-made miniature wooden model of a clam shell-like baking griddle,  multiple images of the wooden model (griddle) were photographed in different angles of openess and closure to make it appear that the griddles were opening and closing, as they would in the drawing of the Sembei cooking machine. The griddle model was placed on a record turn-table and photographed to show how the griddles opened and closed while rotating and baked under the gas flame sectiion of the carousel baking semi-automatic Sembei cooking machine.(Following slide, drawing)
