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

I remember me neighbour use to make bread, it was like a bloomer.  She let it rise next to the fire, for quite a while....over night I think.  I never watched her make it, I wish I did.

My mum and dad had a shop in Park Hall Street, Longton, they sold bread and it was four and half pence.  I was born in 1933 and we moved into that shop when I was five, they sold everything.
