Ma wee Brother used to deliver the Milk in East Kilbride .Ma Da got fed up wi being wakened up at 5 o'clock in the morning,so a device was invented for the Milkman to get Him out of Bed.We lived in a Semi detached and my Brother slept at the back.The solution was a long Rope tied to my Brother's ankle and hung out the Window.The driver would yank on it to wake my Brother up without wakening the whole House.All went well until one Morning He yanked the Rope so hard he almost pulled my Brother out the Window,that was the end of that grand scheme

I totally thought doorstep delivery had died when I was still a kid, certainly by the early 90s, but then when my wife and I moved to Kelvindale in 2006, I was surprised to find it still existed.  Sad to see the foil caps were long gone, though at least I didn't have magpies getting into the milk!  

Over here doorstep milk delivery disappeared decades ago, probably in the early 1970s.

Me too, thought supermarkets etc. had killed it stone dead, but it seems that McQueens still deliver out their depot in Port Dundas.

It was blue tits that had the biggest reputation for pecking through the foil caps and pinching the cream.

Great set of good quality photos.  I know the area well and it was great to see it as it was.  In many senses not much changed but the hairstyles, clothes and paraphernalia really make it.  A true social record.  Should have the prints in the Mitchell.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed them.

I'd hope the whole archive will end up with the Mitchell, if they want it.
