MOTHERS PRIDE IN THE 60'S.  The packaging has changed but Mother's Pride bread is still made by British Bakeries (part of Premier Foods) who also make Hovis and Nimble.

Sherbert pips

Sherbert pips - and the scary man who ran the sweet shop under the railway bridge. Some of the sweets had to be weighed out and put in a little paper bag, sherbet pips being one of those. The shop owner always looked sort of grubby.
