Subject notes
The vents would be to prevent condensation arising from the warm bread. Pairs of horses were used where the load was heavy or the route hilly. Motor vans began to replace horse-drawn ones from about 1910 onwards but it was the 1970s before the last horse-drawn house deliveries ceased.
