Just thought I would stick in my twopeneth!. Prewar and just after there was a small dairy in Glamis Road just opposite where Witton Road meets it. Glamis is off Marlborough Rd, Tuebrook.
There was a small field and quite a big shippen which was behind the shop. They did the bottle washing and filling in sheds in a yard. Bottles had those deadly cardboard caps.
There were six cows which lived in the field and were brought into the shippen for milking and extra feed from hay which was on the 2nd. floor and fed through trap doors  to the cows. Also upthere they had sacks of cowcake and a barrel of molasses or treacle - delicious.
The family was Mr and Mrs Taylor and a son about 8 I think.
The only smell I remember was warm milk. After the war Police houses were built on the field which I think are still there. I lived in Montrose Rd.
I also new a family name of Tudor with a dairy in Cherry Lane but don't know the details.

I am glad someone mentioned the TB problem.  I wondered how much these dairies up all over the country were responsible of the spread of TB.  My mother came to Liverpool from Newfoundland.  Her family had a similar set-up to the cowkeepers back in Newfoundland and TB was rife.  Many member of her family alone died from it - Jackie

O dear!  I was being frivolous but now I remember that a girl from our sunday school whose family had a dairy got TB age about 15. She was in Fazakerley isolation hospital for about 6 months I think and I think is still going strong so I wont mention her name. Alan Williams

I'm sure in my search for Moneypennys someone told me there had been a Moneypenny Dairy, probably in the Everton area of Liverpool.  I've never managed to find any trace of it so if you come across it in your research, I'd appreciate any news.

Thanks.

Just to let people know ;- there is an article in the latest (june 2009) liverpool Family History journal about cowkeepers in Liverpool which covers and expands on things mentioned. It mentions Capstick's dairy at the Tuebrook end of Marlborough Rd. which I remember too as my brother was pals with their son born about 1931 who also went to Lister Drive school as far as I remember.

I have just looked at the Trades section of Green's Directory of Liverpool, 1870, and there are 88 names under Dairymen and Cowkeepers.
I can copy the list for anyone wanting more - send me your email address by PM.
There were still plenty around in the 1930s and 40s and even later, with a few cows, a dairy and [usually horse] delivery rounds, but most have gone the way of most small businesses.
I await the Liverpool FHS journal with interest.

Moneypennys was on the corner of the street (opposite St Georges Street) on Netherfield Road!

I can't remember it being a Dairy, but they did have large back Gates (which would be were the Cow/Cows were kept!).
