Swetenhams use to have a bakery in Chesterton, where the library is.  They use to do 'Mothers Choice' and deliver it in Commer vans.  Victor Values took over Swetenhams.  I use to work for them until they closed in 1967, I was 20.  When Victor Values took over they stopped making bread and bought 'Wonder Loaf' in, after about 6 months they bought 'Mothers Pride' in as well.

when I was a kid I lived in Jamiaca, there use to be a bread van that came through every Tuesday.  In those days things was hard, you just got and eat it.

When I came to England in 1962 bread was outside the shop which was suprising to me, bread without paper.
