Received a few old pictures, in modern digital format. Completely out of the blue from one of our few readers, a chap called Michael. I'll upload the others soon. This is local bread, milled and baked in Manchester. Very likely it's from Canadian wheat (still the best for bread making), maybe it travelled up the Manchester Ship Canal. The photo is dated 1940, and I know this brand was around in the 1930's with a picture of a steam engine named "The Mancunian" on the wrapper. The 'National Loaf', was introduced in 1942 due to shortage of shipping space for white flour so who knows when production stopped...As ever click the photo for a better view and check the 7 points of superiority.
