Scool Milk Bottle

1930s HANSON DAIRY LIVERPOOL 1/3 pt school milk bottle

Description: A 1930ís third-pint wideneck milk bottle used for school milk and embossed with ď HANSONíS SCHOOL SERVICE Ē. This bottle was sealed with a cardboard disc insert. Hansonís dairy was located in Edge Lane and was Liverpoolís largest private dairy which was taken over by Unigate in the 1960ís.

Great recollection Scousemouse, maybe  Horses  have the same sort of Sixth sense as Dogs, when it comes to recognising places they frequently visit,  I think the Hansons Dairy was sited directly somewhere on Edge Lane itself Barbie, although not sure.  .
That one you put up is also interesting as it will probably have been a small independant family run one..
A liitle look through the Street Directories is in order after me Brekkie

Ahhhhhhhhhh Thats better,,  Razz

I had a look and there were absolutely loads of small Dairies dotted about everywhere.  Big outfits were Hansons-Head Office, Edge Lane..  The Co-op : Head Office : Prescot Rd [Old Kenny Market Site] and Reeeces,: Head Office  Brownlow Hill:

The one you put up was a Dairy Barbie, you are correct. it was : William Smith's Dairy : 39 Kempton Rd L15
