  1. That butter must have been from a Jersey cow, to have that colour!

    The bread probably came out that shape from being sqeezed between other loaves. Where the crust looks white is where they were separated. The bulge on top comes from having nowhere else to rise.

    Were there any regulations on cheesemaking back then?
