The Bakers - a Memory of Worcester Park.

I remember Mr Morley, who owned the bakers at the corner of Longfellow Road, roping the bread delivery cart , fully loaded, to the back of his old Ford car and pulling it up the hill to his shop at the top , with the delivery man, who only had part of one arm, swinging between the shafts of the cart. The poor old delivery man's feet barely touched the ground with the rear metal support wheels striking sparks from the road every time the cart lurched back onto the wheels. If the rope had given way, the cart plus the dangling delivery man would have gone backwards down the hill! Health and safety was not the same in those days.
