Scott's bakery

Postby Darlo123 » Fri Mar 20, 2009 11:03 am

Just wondering if anyone can provide information on Scott's bakery? My mother died very recently and I know that her grandfather was (I belive) the founder of the bakery (Bill Scott I think).\ My mother was Rachael Scott and she had two brothers Ian Scott and Ken Scott (Ian still being alive and living in Lytham St Annes. Any info would be greatly appreciated in relation to history or former family or friends?

Scott's Bakery

Postby Jean » Sat Mar 21, 2009 12:22 am

My great grandfather, Anthony Wilson and his brother Francis were confectioners and came from Baltinglass, near the Vale of Avoca in County Wicklow. They left Ireland as the priest announced from the pulpit that the congregation must only buy bread where the sign of the cross was above the door. My family were protestants and were boycotted. I'm guessing this would be about 1870's. They settled in the Liverpool area and opened what were then known as cocoa shops - my great grandfather at Canada Dock and his brother at Alexander Dock (Strand Road). My aunt often related this story and also mentioned members of the Scott family (Scott's Bakery) who also left. The names of Thomas and/or Robert come to mind. Hope this is useful.
My first job when I left school was in Scott's office and I remember "Mr.Bill" and "Mr Ken" as they were called.

Hi, I remember the name, Thomas Scott & Son's back in the early-mid 50's.
Hope this also helps.
Also, when I arrived in Adelaid in 1966, I worked for Tip Top Bakeries, I was told that Scotts was a sister company of Tip Top, who where owned by George Weston group.

I think I have the papers for that, a lot of businesses and properties were auctioned off, and I got the papers photocopied and sent to me, it just says about the buildings and what the rents were and when they were rentable from (too difficult to explain). I will try and find the documents and see what they say.

Nice van, but not Keats Street. I told the museum about this several years ago but they don't seem very interested.

loved scott's when I was younger, every summer we used to go round all the scott's shops beggin for tickets for their summer fair, get in the queue for the free plate of goods, eat them then go back in the queue for some more :lol: , we used to do that for a week 8) .
We also had the Liittlewoods fair for a week as well as Litherland carnival in Moss Lane and the English Elec fair, we never had tickets for that but it was dead easy to bunk in :evil: .
One day we were gettin chased by the security guards and run through their offices, we all run through the open door to get out bar one, he decided to jump over a little wall and through the big bay :lol: not knowing it was a plate glass window...............Mr Nugent used doors after that :roll: .

I was a van lad at Scotts in 1954 and in 1974 I met Bill Scott for the first time in the Directors Box at Everton. I can't remember who they were playing, but they lost and the crowd were booing the directors. Funnily enough the person sitting next to me during the game was Bill Shankley

Scotts van lads, hanging off the back of the delivery van in white overalls shouting to all the girls going to school, we remember you well.

Remember the big Christmas tree they used to have outside the gate. As kids visiting our nan and grandad in the Old Roan, looking out of the number 59 bus in anticipation of the Christmas tree.

Does anyone remember getting tickets from Scotts shops to look around the bakery in Dunningsbridge road and see how the bread, cakes were made. It fascinated me to see the red hot bread being sliced, it was then wrapped in red striped greaseproof paper? and how the ecclis cakes were made. After you had been around the factory you would then go into a big marquee in the back garden and sit down to a plate with half a slice of white, half of brown bread, a drink and small cake. I went to every shop in Bootle to get more tickets and took the kids in the street with me, not for being friendly, to see the bread being sliced again! Pat

Welcome to the site Bill. If you are referring to my post, I'm afraid Frank died several years ago of Cancer. What years were you there?

Hiya Bill, yes, Frank was a top bloke with a very dry sense of humour. Frank and my Dad played for the County quiz team, which was based at the Maghull Country club. I was there from the October 1975 to March 1977. With getting the sack for taking the Saturday off for going to the League cup final, I had no chance of being kept on. I loved working there, the smell of fresh bread at 5am was great, once you got downwind of the Peerless of course. :D

Did he marry a girl from St. Helens? he was very secretive about that but I`m sure he was seeing someone.

I know he was married Bill and that he lived in St Helens, but that's about all I know of his personal life. I can't recall her name.

It was demolished to make way for a retail park. Britain produces nothing now, Bonaparte was right; we are a nation of shopkeepers. :(
