Ernest Dean Newson - Confectioner
and Baker (K1937, SRB1938-50)
The late J B Harris spent boyhood holidays with his family in Southwold and, in his memoir, 'Memories of Southwold 1920 - 1939', recalls: "There was Newson the bakers... who sold the most delicious ices. 1d cornets and 2d wafers, The son, Ginger, used to do the deliveries on a bicycle with a small front wheel with a large basket above it. Besides speed, he was noted for his ginger hair and the shrillest of whistles. Later on Ginger became a loved character but, sadly, he lost interest in life." Quoted with the kind permission of J B Harris's widow, Mary.
