Dairy-Man

Dairy-man

Photograph measuring 3 3/4″ x 2.5″, this one was found at an antiques fair

in Kinver. I think the milk carriage reads G.H. Ferrige – Farm Dairy. 

A little Detective work provided this obituary from 1904 which I’m pretty sure is the gentleman

in question’s, the name matches and Sutton is mentioned in the obituary and the front of the cart.

The house in the background seems rather grand, perhaps this was his property or maybe one of his customers?

The image didn’t scan very well but I thought it should be shared anyway.
