I was in Garston last week and spotted this the Old Dairy in McBride Street so I took a photo with my phone. I don't have any connections to it but thought it might be helpful to someone here.

I used to live near Parrington's dairy in Myers Road West, in Crosby.

They were still doing a horse-drawn milk round well into the 1960's, much to the delight of local gardeners who would dash out with shovels to scoop up manure after the cart had passed by. 

My 1913 directory records that the proprietor at that time was Thos James Parrington, cowkeeper.

MBastian thank you for sharing the photos of George BARGH and some of his dairy cows. 

They give a fascinating insight into the social history of the city of Liverpool.

no need to thank me - thanks to everyone for sharing the info. Also I've now got permission from the person providing the photos to offer more details - they are from Kathleen ROBINSON (nee BENTHAM). She has other Capstick relatives who also had dairies in Liverpool.

Also and just to confirm - the address of George Bargh's diary in photos was Glebe Farm Dairy, 72, Walton Village, Liverpool.

best all,

Michelle

I just noticed in 1901 census of Tuebrook, there was a Dairy at No.1 Ivy Leigh with Robert Scarn (I think) age 35 and wife Kate and Jane Capstick age 73 retired farmer plus 3 cowmen! so it must have been quite big.

In 1940s there was of course a Capsticks dairy over the other side of Tuebrook in Marlborough Road. Humphpaul
