Until the cows come home

Published on November 6th, 2018

We hope you enjoy this special selection of nostalgic photographs from The Francis Frith Collection of milk and dairy delivery carts and dairy cows returning "home" for milking time. Photographs were taken from 1880 to 1965.

A scene which is familiar to us all, even in the rush of today's 'rat-run' world. Plodding cows head for the milking parlour, guided by the farmer on his wobbly upright bicycle.
