Following on from the recent Ashfield Dairy photo Syd Bird has sent me this really old photo. Milk deliveries by horse and trap …and we buy ours in plastic jugs from the supermarket.
Apparently Saughall Dairy also operated out of Manor Road in Hoylake – perhaps they were subsequently replaced by Ashfield? I’ve no idea where this photo was taken …any suggestions?

This is very similar to how I remember the cottage on Birkenhead Road corner with Red Stone Close,though I remember a wall around the garden,not a fence??
Oh yes, that’s a good suggestion.
we lived at 1 manor road after the war,and ashfield farm dairy was on the corner of birkenhead rd,i think it was just a milk store in the entry.

A school friend of mine lived above the dairy shop at the corner of Manor Road. I apologise but, since it was a few years ago, I’m now 73, I can not remember his name but the name Fleming comes to mind. I remember that I often visted his flat after school in about 1950/52 but his family later moved to Meols. In fact he taught me to play Pontoon.

When my dad worked there 1953 to 1958. The Boss was Jack Davies. The foreman was Bert Bibby, called, the vicar. Other workmates were Tommy Newton, Dennis and Tommy Cookson (brothers) Bob Hanson, who had two brothers, and, Charlie Bond and Colin Furlong? There was also an ex RAF,flyer called Fox. Don’t remember his first name. But he was football mad and came to work, so early one morning wearing a shoe and a slipper, He started his round early, so he could get away to attend a football match!
