The last guy's name is a strange one.
Could it be Teague?

All the above names were hand printed on a small piece of paper attached to the photograph and were clear and easily read. The name Teugue was printed as I found it.

The name should be Teague. I have another photograph of the same bakers with my father and mother.

I remember him as Tom Teague - with an 'a'. I have another photo of the men with my father and mother also.

Cyril Saunders is my Grandfather and my father Thomas Saunders was born in Kirkwall in 1945. Can anyone tell me where the bakery was and also Burnside Cottage on Old Scapa Road.

The bakery was off Bridge St. in the lane between nos. 15 and 13.
