Good grief! How long ago was that?
I wasn't buying bread until after we married, and TBH, I can't remember the price, but I do know that when we lived in Scotland in the 70's and 80s that food was expensive, so much so that when we moved to Plymouth in 85' and went shopping, Mrs Mick F was in tears in the supermarket aisles at how cheap food was down south.
We were paying a £1 a loaf in Scotland in the early 80's - I've just been informed. (Just asked Mrs Mick F!)
No doubt things have evened out nowadays.
