1024 : Redelivering The Milk


I have a feeling that I might have featured this photograph before - I certainly included it in my Calendar a couple of years ago. Anyway, this is a re-scan so it doesn't count, and anyway, it is one of my favourite images of that period. Brighouse, West Yorkshire, mid-1960s.

Our milk was never delivered but the "bread man" commeth two or three days a week and we got our usual one loaf of white bread. He also had a pull out tray that would be filled with cinnamon rolls that I loved. He ran over my Donald Duck once and of course killed him. I never liked the bread man after that.

Austin A40?

Great shot, I'm glad you re-scanned. What is the building in the distance which looks to have a walkway in the sky joining two towers?

That is the Brighouse flour mill which at the time the photograph was taken was still in business. Now it is closed although the building still is standing and has been converted into a climbing centre.

What an amazing industrial look this is. Great shot.

Good to know it is still there!
