I grew up in Winehill and during the 1960's we bought sliced bread from Alpin's shop and the post office after Alpin's closed.  I would get 1 loaf of Mothers Pride and 1 loaf of Sunblest.  I can alos remember my maternal grandmother would get bread delivered when I was 5, during the 1950's.  I would have a triangular piece with butter on, if I was good.
