bread servers  were the gombeen men of belfast and beyond,lets not get too romantic about it, they placed anyone that had a rented roof in further debt. ;)

Sad to see tboy Trying to degrade breadsalesmen.  I was one for 5 years from 1970 to 1975.  Those years were very sad years in Belfast.  I worked for Barney Hughes Bakery on the Springfield Road.  Shame on you.  My Father work in Inglis bakery for many years from 1943.  >:(
