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

They don't make their own anymore (pointing towards Town Bakery in the High St) its Bengrys' or somebodys.

The one through the alley (Snapes) can make bread, but it's shut today. The only other place in Newcastle is the Polish, the shop down the bottom, every now and then it's real bread, but I don't like sliced, and they have it sliced. Every now and again they have it, they get a big round flat top loaf. 

My favourite bread is cheap bread, home made, like me Mum used to make.
