Noo jist tae get the baw rollin'.

Ah wus wundering if some brands of breid are still on sale; if anyone wurked in the auld bakeries making them or have oany wee stories to relate to us aw.

Bilsons Bakers, Mothers Pride, Milanda, UCBS <Useless Cakes and Burnt Scones> there are prolly uthers. There wus loads of wee independent bakers too.

Ah used tae think the difference between plain and pan wus the price. Ma Maw telt me only toffs could afford pan breid.

Oanywan know how the terms * plain / pan * came aboot? Wis it due to the container the bried wus baked in?

Aye thanks Su, I meant Bilsland's. Dunno if it is still going tho.

Remember an advert for it which showed, Joe Gilroy scoring an over the hied backward kick goal. Class!

Think it was shown late 60's / early 70's.

Noo ah might be oot tae lunch here but ah aye thought plain breed was oor ain square loaf an "pan" breid was a corruption o the French word fur breed "pain". I guess ah thoat that 'cause a pan loaf was broon a roon, an a different texture. Coorse ye realise this is jista theory 'cause we huv sae miny French wurds in oor Scotland. rolleyes.gif GB
P.S. Noo don't ask me why it wis squere insteed o roon like Fench breed usually is.

Aye DG! I think thier wus Beatties breid, the name rings bells somewhere, wus there no wee breid vans with that name oan them.?

Nooo GB, thats' a good theory tae stairt wi, the French connection hus a loat tae answer fur , much like thier grub, its fair mingin for the maest. But thurr breid isnae tae bad, I like thum bagettes thingies. Mind ye, they are that hard oan the ootside, it skins mah gums.

Thanks for that Stuarty, It prompted me tae look up a wee bit of info, have a wee gander at yon here.

Bilsland's Bakery

When ye see the state of the place there, its enough to make ya waant to greet. Just think how many generations worked and raised their weans aroond thur.
