In answer to an appeal for names, the following information was received in July 2007...

The cart is named J Palmer - Steam Bakery Winterbourne.

I believe this is my Great Great Grandfather James Palmer (born c1854) and his son James (born c1881) my great uncle.

James snr was married to Hannah and had 3 or 4 children and in the 1901 census is listed as a grocer and baker and employed his son James as a journeyman baker, working at home.

My grandfather Kingsley (son of James jnr's brother William),  was also a baker/shopkeeper in Winterbourne Down and died in 1971.

Thank you Tracey for this valuable information; but what was the name of the horse?


Kerry M Walsh writes (April 2009) to confirm the names of the above, but cannot supply the name of the horse.

However, she has sent us a photograph of James Palmer (born 1854)...


Thanks Kerry
