I've just come back from my sister-in-law's in Halifax - and I was amazed at the bread that the sandwiches were made out of!
I asked my sister-in-law if she had spent ages cutting the crusts off the pan loaf.
"No," she says. "It's an Invisible loaf!"
It seems that you can now get pan bread without any crusts! If it has arrived in Scotland yet, nobody's letting on, but would you believe it? What next - no bread, only crusts?!!! Where will it end? laugh.gif

Bilsland's plain bread was brilliant. Do ye no remember "Bilsland Bob the Mountie." That was their advert. My dad was the manager of Andrew Cochrane;s in Maryhill Road [the one that faced down into Bilsland Drive] and they only sold Bilsland's bread.

Bilslands Bakery was taken over by Spillers French which they called their bakery division Homepride Bakeries.In fact it was 1978 when spillers french went into liquidation and closed their intrest in the bakery industry.
In saying that Bilslands Bakery was actually a PROFIT making bakery at the time with over 100 delivery vans on the road.The reason i know this?My late father was Bakery sales manager at the time of its demise.

Beattie´s, Bilsland´s, Welma and Milanda are my memory. used to hate square/ plain bread when I was a kid. We usually had "French" which was not very French- very strange shape. also think that the "Vienna" loaf was more like French and probably unknown in Austria.

BTW, Danish pastry is called Viennese in Denmark. How do all these errors occur?

My father worked in Beattie´s in Dennistoun for a while 1n the late 50´s and my mother in Macfarlane Lang´s , Tollcross .

Ma Ma worked in Milanda in Weslayan Street back in the 1960's, an ah can honestly say there's nothin nicer tae a cuppa tea than a few warm crumpets pulled ooty yer cleavage. Swipin the strawberry tarts wis a bit merr o a problem though. biggrin.gif

Milanda had a wee shop called the Shan Shop where damaged products could be bought cheaper. Little did the public know it wis also hoatchin wi rats.

Ah don't normally eat white breid noo - ah switched tae wholemeal breid aboot 30 years ago - but ah still like the odd plain piece oan jam. The best white breid ah ever tasted wis Price's - the loaves were usually aw misshapen, but the crusts were as black as the Earl o Hell's waistcoat. Ma Ma used tae always tell me it made yer herr curly - it jist made mine faw oot. rolleyes.gif

Remember the lovely different kinds of bread we could buy in Lewis's? I particularly remember a sort of cottage loaf my gran would buy although she called it a French loaf. I can still remember how great it tasted. smile.gif

Vienna loaf that was fab. It reminds me of the wee half dozen box of cakes as well. Was it Tunnocks cakes ah'm rememberin' they had the picture of the wee cakes in kind of brown outline on the top of the box?
