They weren't always flat, hence Larwood and Voce causing such consternation in 32/33 - they had expected flat pitches, but what they found was that generally the bounce was pretty uneven
As an aside the nature of pitches has nothing to do with the production of pace men otherwise Pakistan wouldn't have produced any. We did produce men who were very fast however like McCormick and Nash. Others who were sharp like Wall. Wall's record in Oz being quite good. He struggled on the slow pitches of England. The fact we didn't produce fast men the quality of Gregory, McDonald, Lindwall, Miller or Johnston is just down to circumstance. In fact the post war trio mentioned flourished in a decade (the 40s) when our pitches were documented to have slowed right down.

The funny thing about Bradman fans is that NONE of them have watched him bat and make fancy assumptions.
It's all white pride, only whites rate Bradman the greatest. Ask a non white or in fact very few whites, they will rate Viv Richards as the greatest.
That awkward moment where some tart brings race into a chat about how good some guy was at hitting a ball.
