Milk Bar Era

"Does anyone remember the Milk Bar era?

There was one in South St David Street and another in Shandwick Place on the left.'

Milk Bar

"The milk bar in Shandwick Place that Frank refers to was a wonderful place.  If I remember correctly, we had to go up some steps to it.

I loved all those lovely fresh filled rolls they sold.  There was a queue at lunch time every day.

It was 1954, and I worked in the dog salon at Gibbs in Shandwick Place at that time, washing and doing all these things to make the dogs look beautiful.  This was done upstairs in the store."
