“Mr Jim enjoyed baking for you” – The Story of Lamond Family Bakers

Angus Lamond, son of the late Past President James Lamond, (see picture below) has just finished putting together a book charting the history of the family baking business and in particular the life and times in the baking industry of his father, “Mr Jim”.

The story goes all the way back to 1914 to Jim’s own Uncle Jim - James Lamond (The First), who started the business in Pollokshaws, Glasgow in 1914 prior to the outbreak of World War 1.

Part 1 of the story was written by James Lamond (The Second) taking the story up to 1988, and Part 2 by Angus taking the story all the way up to 2019.

The book is for the enjoyment of everyone who knows or knew of the Lamond Family, associated with Scottish Baking for one hundred years – and still counting, and for anyone else interested in a good family business story.

The book also includes details of an 11-minute YouTube video of the “Deanston Drive” (Glasgow) working craft bakery in the late 1960s.

To order your copy of the book, e-mail Angus

The cost of the book is £15, which includes UK postage and packaging. Please remember to include your name and postal address for delivery of the book, and use the word BOOK as the reference. Proceeds from the book will be going to Cancer Research UK and The M.S. Society.

Fascinating bit of film there, that is the period when I was an apprentice Baker and Confectioner. Seeing techniques in use there that would raise eyebrows today and have Health and Safety apoplectic.
