Worked at Harvey 1980s,worked 6 days and long hours,
I remember the Harvey's red-seal bread and the blue delivery trucks BMC or Leyland FG (THREEPENNY BIT) CABS.
In the 1940s/50s the Harvey’s bakery was in Manley Street, Lower Ince, when Harvey’s left, it became a milk distributing depot.
Was Lowthers who made Eccles cakes, part of Harveys?
Lowthers was the original bakery in Cale Lane and later taken over by Harvey's.
Thanks for that Ken. I thought there was a connection.
Albert.S The dairy in Manley Street, Ince you mentioned was Hansons I think.
Harvey's bakery was at the bottom of Harvey St. The top being were Britannia Bridge school used to be.
house's being builton this site today;I think lowthers is still there?
G.R, Harvey Street, and Manley Street formed the same corner, so it is six of one, and half a dozen of the other.
Wigginlad, Albert, was Hansons Dairy ,left hand side bottom of Manley St.Mate of mine had a Milk round for Hansons. Early 60,s .
Worked at Harvey's when I left school in 1969 as a van lad. I was on round 14 to St Helens with Alan Pomfret as driver.
Served an electrical and mechanical apprenticeship here from 1968 to 1972 in the maintenance department. I seem to remember that one of our jobs was to clean out the filters in the top of the flour silos.
