Your place to talk about your Bootle memories

I was never a Van Lad for Scotts but would help out the driver, on Saturdays I think his name was Stan Greenwood, never got paid but he would give us a cream cake at the end if the day. I was still at school so it would be around 1953/4 and maybe into early 55

Two of my uncles Mick and Joe Wash were van drivers for Scotts in the from the 1040's. I think Mick was based in Netherton and Joe worked out of somewhere round St Annes Street and he also acted as personal driver for Bill Scot at one time.

The surname on that previous post should have read Walsh. Apologies

Scotts Bakery.............

Postby marymaple que. » Tue Aug 30, 2011 3:31 pm

Hi.there..I used to live in Grey St. and Hood St. my parent's worked in Scott's bakery at the end of our street, I think it was on Gower St. then it moved to Netherton, my Mom worked there also and I think that her bosses name was Jimmy Pinder-----this was in the 1950's.I also had an uncle who worked at the Netherton bakery his name was Paddy Power, and he used to live in a street called Orched Hey, close by Scott's. I came to Canada in 1956, and remember the walnut cream cake that my Mom would bring home on a Saturday, really great memories.............M.P.

My mum and dad worked for Scotts back in the 1950's/60's. Dad, who was there for years was a confectioner and I remember the walnut cakes too. Mum worked in the shop. A couple of names I remember them talking about, George Doran think he was a gate man, Lil who worked in the shop. I will tell them about this thread they would love it. I think my dad has pics somewhere of the fairs they had
searching for names;- Clarkin, Deegan, Larkin Hunter, Seymour, Jones.
Conway Street, Wadham Rd, Viola St, Keble Rd

Sorry to revive a really old thread.

My mum has just showed me a watch that used to belong to her grandad. It's engraved on the back with the following:

"Presented to Mr P.J Mason by Messrs Thomas Scott & Sons (Bakers) Ltd. in appreciation of loyal service 1914-1963"

Just wondering if this is the same bakery as in this thread and if anybody knew of a Mr P.J Mason?

Remember as a kid getting the 59 bus from Bootle to the Old Roan to visit my nan and grandad. Exciting at Christmas time to spot the big Christmas tree with lights outside Scott's on Dunningsbridge Road, this was some 55 years ago when outdoor lights were not common. My wedding cake was purchased from here in 1978.

Love this photo. As a child I always wanted to sit in that truck.
If my memory serves me well this is on the corner of Hawthorn Rd and Aintree Rd with Dr Bathursts surgery on opposite corner.

I sat in one of those vans, six days a week for two years, Keith. :) :D I don't think it's on the corner of Hawthorne Road as the half miley started there and there was also a gents toilet on that corner. It looks more like Dunningsbridge Road.

Phil, I meant sitting in the truck on the hoarding as it was in 3D.
I swear this was Hawthorn Road though.
If you look at the aerial shot of Dunningsbridge earlier on this thread, there are no buildings close to the hoarding.

You are probably right, Keith, my memory only goes back to 1968. Walking down Hawthorne Road to Derby Park, I can't remember any more other than the railway tunnel starting in that corner with MANWEB based on the facing corner. My Doctors as you say was on the other and shops including Ross's faced them.

Not with you on this one Keith, as far as i can remember (same as Phil) it was just the ralla, i can remember passing the same (or similar) hoarding coming from town and it was on St Anne Street/Rose Hill. JJC.

Absolutely NOT Keats Street. I did try to correct this many years ago but was ignored.

The Hansard entry for the closure of Scott's tells a very sad story of what happens when a family firm with an interest in its workers and its community sells out (for whatever reason - often age and lack of succession) to a giant. My family knew a couple of generations of the Scott family well - I used to baby sit for one of them!

Always admired the three dimensional truck advertisement near Liverpool centre (I think the L6 Ribble bus used to pass it on the way into town) - not sure how long it would survive today
