'A Baker's Tale. The Life and Times of Ernest Adams' - Hugh Adams

Hazard Press 2005, 244pp. Softcover. Former owner's name on first blank page in. Overall good condition.

'For much of the last century the names 'Adams Bruce' and 'Ernest Adams' were familiar indeed to lovers of rich cakes and sponges. These firms shared a common origin, had bakeries in all the main centres and sponge kitchens in the smaller centres. Their bright red and white delivery vans were nearly always to be seen busily delivering cakes - often still warm from the ovens - to local shops. This is a lively tale dealing with the origins, fortunes and misfortunes of the firm, written by Hugh Adams, son of Ernest Adams, who was right in the middle of the action for many years. He dedicates the book to the memories of his father, the company's many loyal employees and the firm's many satisfied customers. The book is well laced with photographs, some going back almost a hundred years, and includes numerous anecdotes.'
