Milk Deliveries

Milk Deliveries

Morning milk deliveries in Finlay Drive, Dennistoun, 1955.

This photograph contrasts the old and the new, with a horse-drawn milk cart and a modern electric milk float passing during door-to-door deliveries.

In 1955 Partick Camera Club set out to create a photographic survey of Glasgow. As the project progressed, other camera clubs joined and each was allocated a district of the city to photograph. Glasgow Museums exhibited the photographs at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and at the People's Place, and in 1956 the exhibition was shown at the Palace of Art in Bellahouston Park. The photographs are now part of Glasgow Museums' collections.
