Question asked “What do you remember about bread or bread baking”.
My mother use to buy bread from the bread shop on London Road until she died 3 years ago, she always had her bread from there. It use to belong to the Marsh family. We had a shop on the terrace along from us and Mrs Marsh would come along and deliver the bread to the shop. She used a bike with a basket on the front. If I was ever sent for the bread it didn't come back whole 'cause I use to like pulling the crust off it. It was nice, just like the homemade bread now. I don't think it's as nice as I remember it as a child from the same shop. It probably is but you know what it's like, you get older and your tastes change.
