Dating from around the 1910’s, this previously unseen photo shows Blantyre milk deliveries taking place. Pictured is Alexander Craig and two milkmaids for his farm at Bellsfield, High Blantyre. The people stand holding milk jugs for delivering smaller quantities from the milk churns. The cart is clearly labelled although the exact location in unknown as rural areas like this could very well be built upon by today.
This is another photo from the David Ritchie collection, an early photographer from High Blantyre’s Main Street. Shared here from Alex Bowie with sincere thanks.
