The New Imperial Bakery and Victory Confectionery Stores, Champion Reefs, KGF

We (as well as a lot of other families from KGF) got our just baked "Daily Bread" home delivered every day at 4 PM from this Bakery in Champion Reefs opposite the KGF Hospital. Payment was made once a month and the baker kept an account of the number of loaves each family bought in a long note book.

Every year on Maundy Thursday, freshly baked Hot Cross Buns were delivered as per advance orders for Good Friday.

Unique Feature of buildings that were constructed in the early 1900s in KGF

A distinguishing and unique feature of most of the buildings that sprung up in KGF in the early 1900s was that granite stones of the finest quality was used to construct them. The most outstanding feature is their solidity, Some of these buildings that have stood the test of time and are still in fairly good condition even after a century are:
1. All the Main Offices in all the mines,
2. The Cauvery and the Kolar Mines Power Stations or the Electricity Departments in Oorgaum, pictured above.
3. The original building of the KGF Golf Club.
4. St Mary’s Church which was later renamed as Our Lady of Victories Church in Champion Reefs.
5. Part of the main building of the Mining Hospital in Champion Reefs
6. The St Micheal’s and All Angels Church in Oorgaum.
7. Part of The Oorgaum Dairy.
