Leeds Technical College, Bakery Department Exhibition, Gower Street
11th May 1927 The Lord Mayor, Alderman Hugh Lupton admires the cakes on show at the Leeds Technical College Bakery Department Exhibition. A royal iced cake on a silver cake stand is displayed in the centre of the table. The Lord Mayor turns his attention to a novelty iced cake which appears to be in the form of a basket of chocolates. A notice on the wall informs that 'all the show stands and trays used are supplied by the United Yeast Company Limited'. This company was located at 70 Wellington Street and 15 to 19 Queen Street. A large silver trophy is also displayed on the table.

I am trying to build my Family Tree, my Grandfather Henry Rose was a Master Baker in Pack House Yard Leeds in the second half of the 19th Cent and the early part of the 20th Cent. The Rose Famliy had the business from early 19th Cent and then for some years it was run by William Morris though the death of my Gt. Grandfather and a second marriage. It then returned to my Grandfather Henry Rose. I have been told that Henry built a bridge of loaves across a road to celebrate a Royal occasion. I should be deeply obliged for any further information you may have Yours sincerely Jak T Webb
