RE the letter from Alison Russon Was my Grandma right about the Lindy Lou oven? in The Bugle (May 1 edition).
Well I do not know about the Lindy Lou but my grandfather and father had a bakery and grocer's shop in Pearson Street - J. Gibbons, established 1883. Among the stories that Dad told me was that they used to cook turkeys etc. for their customers and neighbours at Christmas in the bakery ovens, as the ordinary domestic ovens were not large enough.
So I think that Alison's grandmother was quite correct in her recollection.
I trust this is of interest.
