In the past

The Kelso Bakery, located at 160 Baylis Street opposite the Plaza Theatre, was established by Master Baker Cam Robertson and his father-in-law in the late 1920s. Later Cam Robertson bought out his father-in-law and the business was operated on behalf of Robertson himself and his wife Elsie. The horse-drawn Kelso Bakery carts were well known in Wagga. They were used by the Bakery until August 1964 when they were replaced by motorised transport not long after the Kelso Bakery amalgamated with the Riverina Bakery. It was a nostalgic occasion, signalling the end of an era. The horses named ‘Nigger’ and ‘Toby’ had between them clocked up forty years of service with the Kelso Bakery. One of the drivers, Roy Edmondson, claimed that a horse and cart was better than a truck as horses knew the route forwards and backwards and, he claimed, ‘you can whistle up a horse but you can’t whistle up a van’.
