  • Harriss the Baker, when i was still at school in the 1940’s, I remember working there, I was the lad who used to ride the trade bicycle behind the horse and cart and help deliver the bread .(West Tilbury and up to the Linford Road via Blue Anchor Lane.)

  • My family lived at 4 Shaw Crescent after being bombed out of 40 Kipling Avenue – nearly every day I was dispatched to walk over the field behind Fielding Avenue to the Bakery to fetch a newly baked loaf. In winter it was shoved up my jacket to keep me warm. The bread was delicious and many times I could not resist eating some by burrowing into it when walking home arriving with a great hole in an end..
