And we hope you tuck in to these retro photos by browsing through this archive collection and then getting in touch with your own memories of these scenes.
How about the pie baking competition at Barnes Court or the pork pie show in Houghton? There’s the pie and pea group at Columbia and the pie eating contest in Grangetown.
Take a look and see if you can spot someone you know.
