Publisher: Shire

Author: Tom Phelps

Tracing the footsteps of British milkman over the past one hundred years, this book takes a nostalgic look at a great British tradition. Investigating the many changes that have taken place over the years, from the delivery of milk via a seventeen gallon churn to the gentle electric milk float, The British Milkman discusses how many obstacles, including two World Wars, were overcome, revealing many forgotten facts and including several never-before-published photographs of the milkman at work.
