Caption for Gillingham, High Street C1960

The Cuckow ...Read full memory

Milk Deliveries By Handcart

I spent the first ten years of my life living in Osborne Road and Stevens Dairy was at the end of the road. Mr Stevens used to deliver milk on a three wheeled handcart - customers would take out a jug and he would ladle the milk from a big churn. The orchard and dairy was used as a short cut by anyone wanting to ...Read full memory
