the milkmen

Gordon's Dairy circa 1940
on Dundas St W in Toronto
don't you just love that tear drop cart?

Wow! You brought back memories. I'm from a generation when home delivery was common. The horses were smart. The knew when to stop and when to move on to the next house. It was also a time when when you could leave money in an empty milk bottle for the milkman. No one would ever think of stealing it.

A very nice picture. The carriages are so cute, like half an egg.

So cleverly done, hard to see where mural ends and real life starts.

This is a wonderful mural. It's so realistic. I had no idea that milk delivery was done by horse drawn cart as late as the 40s. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I'm posting a mural from Islington tomorrow!

Cute! Those cars remind me of the French Citroen Deux Chevaux (which means two horses!).
