'Whitson Mick'

"Many have commented on the site about the store milkman in the Whitson area, my Uncle Mick, a man always with a smile.

We have trawled through the family photos to find one of Mick with his beloved horse and we hit the jackpot.      Guessing from the dress of the child, my uncles age would probably have been taken late-50s.

Uncle Mick always wore his cap and great coat to keep out the weather and his 'milk bottle' glasses and of course the smile.   No Gore-Tex protective work wear with fluorescent stripes in those days!

Maybe you recognise yourself as the lucky child or know exactly where this picture was taken and when.    We would be interested to hear.
