Behind the shop is a room where the flour was sifted and the newly baked bread was placed to cool. The adjoining room is the actual bakery and is dominated by a baking table and the large brick oven.
The fire had to be lit well in advance as it took several hours to heat up the oven. A wood fire was lit inside the oven and was raked out when the oven was sufficiently hot.
The bread was baked on metal trays on the floor of the oven. The bakery required supervision around the clock. A baker often worked a 16–18 hour day, as did his journeymen and apprentices. Facing onto the yard is the room where the journeymen slept between shifts. Apprentices slept on the bakery floor or behind the oven.
