Today's Bread, which stood at the corner of Centre and Burroughs in the 1980s.

For our Photo of the Day on Thursdays, we highlight an image of old JP, often from the online archives of the Jamaica Plain Historical Society. That’s the case with this week’s photo, which is of Centre and Burroughs streets back in the 1980s.

As many residents remember, the spot now occupied by Bukhara Indian Bistro was long the home of Today’s Bread. For more on the history of that corner, click through to the JP Historical Society’s site.

The Historical Society’s photo archive is a neighborhood treasure. Please visit it!

If you have a photo that screams (or even whispers) “Jamaica Plain,” here are three ways to nominate it as our “Photo of the Day”:

    I remember. It was a revelation. Before Today’s Bread, you had to go to the North End for a great cup of coffee and an exquisite baked good. Now such places are on every street corner.

    I remember standing in line for their croissants. Still cannot get a good croissant in JP. I miss this place.

    Today’s Bread was a gem, an anomaly. I spent many a morning there and miss it greatly.
