Percy Ingle’s History
(photo from London Shop Fronts)
I was looking at this Percy Ingle Bakery on Chatsworth Road and wondering where the first one was as I knew it was somewhere in east London. It turns out that it was in Clarence Road, although I haven’t found much more about it aside from what Percy Ingle have on their website. I’ll carry on digging around.
“A tradition of baking
Like his father and grandfather Percy started his working life in the family bakers in Hackney, East London along with his three brothers. The family worked endlessly to provide quality bread and cakes to the people of the East end. Having married his wife Lillian and already the proud father of son Derek in 1954 Percy decided the time was right to open his own business, starting with his first shop on Clarence Road, Hackney.“
