4 Apr 1912 – The Fate of the Hot Cross Bun

THE hot cross bun is going to share the fate of many other old customs brought into Australia by the pioneers.  It is going to disappear.  Last year the Bakers Union requested the Master Bakers Association to discontinue the practice of making the buns, and after taking into consideration the fact that on the Wednesday night preceding Good Friday the men had to do two nights work, they decided to comply with the request.  Only a few persons engaged in the trade are making buns this Easter.
