Pictured as a young man, Arthur Rochead is out delivering milk in the 1940s.
Alex Rochead told me, “My uncle Arthur was born on 17 May 1929. Here is is delivering milk before the use of milk bottles.”
If he’s eighteen or so in this photo, it may be around 1947.
The location looks like Hunthill Road. The cart, which would have been pulled by a horse is laden with milk churns, the small canisters being used to fill up and deliver to businesses and residents. The cart is labelled “James Rochead” meaning the delivery run was for Broompark Farm. Such a wonderful picture and thank you to Alex for sharing.
