This photo was in the local paper in Bridgwater (http://boakandbailey.com/2007/12/27/small-town-blues/) recently. It shows a queue for hot cross buns outside a bakery in 1946. Of course we were more interested to see the livery on the Starkey, Knight and Ford (http://boakandbailey.com/2007/09/18/starkey-knight-and-ford-defunct-brewery/) pub in the background.

The pub’s not there anymore, but my parents remember going there the day after they were married to keep warm during a power cut.
