Milk

post-188-0-57083200-1407765333

By the time I got there,

the walkways, built

to accommodate

milk floats for the daily

pinta, were no longer

served by the Express

or Unigate. The Presto

was cheaper and the new

lighting hung too low

causing the floats

to crack and break

the plastic housings’.

 

Betty on Edith Walk

bought garden furniture

and left it out

for the oldies like her

to rest and watch

the traffic jams

along Infirmary Road

after shopping trips

for cheaper milk;

more costly on their

shaking limbs than

tight purse strings.
