Hi Judy, I used to work at your dad's bakery as well, what a great place to work. I worked in the cake department and my manager was Johnny Andrews. My name is Ty, look forward to hearing from you.

Jones's Bakery in mid 60's. My mate Alan Quinney was delivery boy and I took over for a few months when he packed it in. He reminded me that the old guy who drove the Morris Minor delivery van was Albert Sparks who lived in Booths Fields. I remember the round was around Longford & Exhall & I distinctly remember going along Blackhorse Lane.

I have seen an advertisement in the "Coventry Standard" 13th July 1861 which describes a newly-opened bakery, "Rider and Betts, Steam Bread Works, Coventry", which produced "Aerated Bread by Dr Dauglish's Patent Process". The advert describes a bread made with no ferment at all including yeast or barm, and highlights its purity, tastiness, lightness and nutritional qualities. It also describes the cleanliness of the process, with the product being untouched by the bakery workmen. I understand that aerated bread nationally remained popular for almost the next hundred years. I wonder where the Coventry Steam Bread Works was located, and how long it remained in business?

There is mention of them opening a shop at 6 The Burges. They are still going in 1912 as there is mention of a removal company moving to 24 West Orchard "opposite Ryder and Betts". It sounds like some sort of Soda Bread and was obviously very popular. They are still there in 1918 when one if the ovens caught fire. Edited by member, 24th Feb 2015 2:36 pm

Apologies if someone has already mentioned this but I clearly remember the glass cases inside Gladdings shops, displaying their chocolate cakes and goodies, such as Walnut Whips. As a special treat we occasionally had one of their little individual trifles. Also in Wimbush's I loved their pineapple tarts with yellow icing on the top. There was a Gladdings on Daventry Road on the parade of shops there.

Ty. Sorry that it's taken me so long to reply. My wife's real name is Rosemary but has had the nickname Sue for many years and that is how she likes to be known. Exactly what she did I really don't know and she isn't here at the moment for me to ask. I think she was a bit of a "floater" as she has told me about injecting jam into doughnuts and running a tray wash machine and nicking pasties for her lunch as soon as they came out of the oven.

Hi Norman, thanks for the reply. Does she know the people working in the cake department at the time and if so who did she know. I cannot remember a Sue. I started there in 1978, was Sue there then?

I see in the latest edition of ECHO that plans have been submitted to partially demolish and turn the somewhat picturesque former bakery on the corner of Spencer Avenue and Albany Road into student flats. Oh my Full Planning Application Edited by member, 12th May 2015 9:43 pm

Does anyone remember the Kents' bakery in Well Street? I only came across it by accident in planning records. It was run by two women of that name. They wanted to rebuild and expand in 1954 but were refused permission as the street was to be blocked-off for the building of the Telegraph offices and print works.

I remember Gladdings. I loved their lemon curd buns, pineapple Swiss roll and Duchess biscuits. No other bakery was quite like them as they had unique products. Many happy memories. They used to have a shop in Market Way. I used to go there on my lunch break for a prawn roll. Sadly one day I got food poisoning and was in bed for a week!

So many memories are evoked by the mention of these bakeries. What pleasure we got from their products. How sad to think that now most of us make do with the inferior offerings of supermarkets and multi national companies. What happened!
