Two milkmen from Manor Farm dairy pictured in Hauxton Road. They are Mr Amey on the left and Henry Ellis. They each carried a gallon can which would be refilled from the large churn carried on the float. When taken to the door, milk would be ladled into a jig provided by the householder. Milk was sometimes delivered twice a day to coincide with the morning and afternoon milking of the cows ensuring the milk was fresh even in hot weather.
