George and Margaretha Seuss, Ted’s grandparents on his mother’s side of the family, owned a bakery in the South End of Springfield across from the Howard Street Armory. It’s no longer there, but the Armory, with its famous turreted towers like those that Dr. Seuss used in his books, can still be seen. Young Ted visited his grandparents’ bakery often as a child and many of his early memories were formed by visits here.
