My uncle worked for Roberts Bakery in Biddulph, he'd drop the bread off.

There was another typr of bread, Almonds Bakery, that was an old one as well.

It was beautiful bread was,it was lovely.  During the war I got bread from the Co Op.

My dad was a chef and he would make his own bread, it was alright but it wasn't like bought bread.  During the war he worked where they made the food, I was never hungry.

If I could get bread delivered now I'd have a loaf a day.

I put a piece of bread in the toaster now and when it comes out it's little.  I had bread and cheese for my tea, it didn't do me any harm and I'm 93, we didn't know what cholesterol was!  When i was young we use to have a piece of rolled up pudding and gravy before dinner.

Bread now is full of water, I have a slice of toast from supermarket bread.  When you've toasted it it's gone down so little.

We use to go and get bread a cottage loaf and sometimes a bloomer loaf.  I'd get them from the local bakers when I lived in Ramsgate in the early 1930's.

I moved to Stoke in 1996 and I would get bread from Burgess Bakery.

I can remember 2 bread strikes.  There was a bakery called Smith's and people would que and que, my father-in-law would go and stand outside and get us all a loaf of bread.

The second one was in the 70's, my husband had a friend who worked at the bakery and he would get a tray of bread.  He'd share this out around the street so everybody had bread.

I remember going for bagels with my dad, it was a Jewish bakery.  I was aged 5-12 and lived in Manchester, you don't see them bakeries round here.  They do these American ones in the supermaket in packets but I don't think they're as nice.  We would also get normal loaves from the same bakery, my dad sliced his bread like a door step.

When I was at school you had cooking lessons, the whole room was like a kitchen.  We all did proper baking from scratch.  You had the yeast and the water and everything.  We made a whole loaf on our own then took it home and ate it, it was well worth doing.
