DR OLIVER EXPLAINS

 

 

 

A Bath Oliver is a hard, dry biscuit or cracker made from flour, butter, yeast and milk; often eaten with cheese. It was invented by physician William Oliver of Bath, Somerset around 1750, giving the biscuit its name.

When Oliver died, he bequeathed to his coachman, Mr. Atkins, the recipe for the Bath Oliver biscuit, together with £100 and ten sacks of the finest wheat-flour. Atkins promptly set up his biscuit baking business and became rich. Later the business passed to a man named Norris who sold out to a baker called Carter, although it is possible that several Bath bakers were producing the biscuit in competition. During the nineteenth century the Bath Oliver biscuit recipe passed to James Fortt.  The company continued to produce the biscuit well into the second half of the twentieth century. Bath Olivers are currently produced by United Biscuits.

I''be not had the pleasure of the of a Bath Oliver; I feel there is hole in my life which I must rectify on my next visit to the city. Shame we can see more of the woman with the green hair stood never the doorway.

He has a captive audience ..why hasn't he put a collecting cap on the ground.
As Peter Sellers once said: ''If they have time to watch they have time to pay''

More strange goings on in Bath. Is that a Monk/Nun standing at the back of the group?
Chris: Yes I think he/she is Brian
I am appreciating the British sense of humour more and more with a new addition. Beside the fact that it is fresh in my mind after having watched a few episodes last night, the fellow in this shot reminds me of Mrs. Brown's boys.
Chris: Thank you Mary, I have no idea of Canadian humour..
This photo is quite bizarre, but then it is Bath...
Chris: Perfectly normal for Bath Frank..
