Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.

In the late 1930's at Christmas time my dad use to take our bird to be cooked at Stones Bakery in Newcastle. We would have a turkey or a duck or fowl.  We had to pluck it at home first.  We would sit there when my dad brought this bird in and we would pluck it and put the feathers on the fire.
