  4. I’d like to send you an image you might like, it’s the original design for the Jolly Miller Van sign writing. My mother’s family owned the company and we used to ride around my uncle’s farm in an old Jolly Miller van, feeding hay to the cows. That was in the 1970s. I don’t know how I can post the image.


    1. Sean, really sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I have been away on holiday etc. I would love to add your mother’s family Jolly Miller van to my site . please either scan and email me at howardhunter1@me.com or post to Quayside Bakery, unit A6 Lyntown trading estate, Old Wellington Road, Eccles, Manchester, M30 9QG


  5. Hello – thank you posting these. Some of them bought back memories.

    I suppose this really is a question to Sean from March 29, 12016 – Hello Sean, My name is Willa Cartwright and my Father was a motor mechanic for Jolly Miller bakeries (in Melbourne, Australia) in the latter half of the 1960s. I remember the vans and the special smell they had. Question, would you have some more details about the company? Some other pictures of the vans, etc. I’d appreciate that very much. Best Regards – Willa
