F. Jackman, Baker - High Street, Handcross

In the middle of the High Street Mr F. Jackman’s staff pose for a photograph outside the bakery and shop. In such a rural area the two delivery vans would have been kept busy supplying the outlying residences which would not have a easy way of collecting perishable goods.
A Christmas gift from Mr Jackman can be seen on picture #467.
The Large Version shows a close-up of the bakery staff.

Roads - Handcross - High Street (South)
The Cosens family lived here for about 15 years up to 1948 when we all moved to 29 Truggers.
It was a baker's shop at that time. Our front door is shown in the middle of the picture and we lived upstairs including the use of the room on the right of the picture.
Washing was hung out round the back. It came out of the front door, over the little wall and round the back, according to mother, Elsie Cosens.
The old, unused bakehouse can be seen on the extreme left of the picture - a great adventure playground.
"Aunt Rose" Holland lived downstairs at the rear of the shop and had the bedroom upstairs on the left of this picture. The Riley family lived downstairs on the right.
