23 Hope Street, Curtis Dairy

History of 23 Hope Street

Milly Barraclough recalled being sent with her sister with a pint jug and fourpence to Mr Curtis’s dairy. They would knock on the door and hand over the money and jug to Mrs Curtis. The rather forbidding lady would close the door and later return with their jug full of milk from the dairy in the back yard. The milk came from the cows the Curtis boys drove in for milking from the fields in the Rustat Road area. (JF)
