Grange Bakery [c.1912]
Dating from around 1912, this photo was taken at the premises of the Grange Bakery operated by Edwin Standing. His son Harry is standing next to and holding the reins of the horse. The young lad sat in the driver's seat is Edwin Standing's grandson Fred. The bakery was located on the corner of Dartmouth Street and Grange Road and in recent years the retail building was operating as a mini-supermarket.

"I desire to end my days in a tavern drinking, May some Christian hold for me the glass when I am shrinking; That the Cherubium may cry, when they see me sinking, 'God be merciful to a soul of this gentlemen's way of thinking'”
