Appropriate bread for Ontario ci. 1972?

January 9, 2008 - 7:35am -- wholegrainOH

An odd request: I'm working on a production of Michael Healey's play, The Drawer Boy, which will be produced by our local professional theatre company. In the play, one of the characters (a man who was brain damaged by shrapnel in World War II) obsessively bakes bread. The play takes place in 1972 in rural Ontario, on a farm.


The question: what sort of bread would he be baking? Any Canadian bakers on the group?
