Most of us now buy our milk from supermarkets or other shops but for many years getting it delivered was a part of everyday life.

The Watford Observer has again teamed up with Watford Museum and is delighted to showcase some pictures from its archive - this week we remember The Express Dairy in the town.

The museum’s volunteer archivist Christine Orchard said: “The Express Dairy Company Ltd had a number of shops in Watford including Queen’s Road, St Albans Road and Whippendell Road. They also had depot in Charles Street which is shown in this photograph; both shops and dairy depot had originally belonged Lee, Wiggs and Clarke Ltd.

“Pinpointing the exact location of the depot is difficult as the Atria shopping centre and ring road cover this area.

“Charles Street originally ran from Carey Place to Derby Road and a rough location of the depot would be where the entrance to the King Street car park is off the ring road.

“This image is dated November 1955 and I believe the horses where still stabled at the depot.”

Watford Museum is currently closed for essential electrical work. It hopes to reopen on November 12.
