St Cuthbert's Coop

Milk Deliveries

This view looks along Fountiainbridge towards St Cuthbert's Co-op buildings on the left of the picture at the corner of Gardner's Crescent.

The horse is returning for the final time with its empty milk float from St Cuthbert's Co-op Dairy to the horses' stables in the next street, Grove Street.

This photograph was taken on January 26, 1985, the last day that St Cuthbert's used horse-drawn floats to deliver milk in Edinburgh, after 125 years of operation.
