Well, Dave’s been in touch again – Hello Dave! – with a painting he created some years ago – 1954, in fact – that he’d forgotten, but is of a scene once familiar to most people in the local area.
I’m sorting out some old paintings I did years ago I found in the attic.
I came across this one I did which I had forgotten about. Milk float snow scene Birmingham Road on the Broadway, Walsall 1950’s.
It may be interesting to those who remember bread and milk delivered like this. I can.
Dave, I really love your work, always happy to share your creations as I am doing today – your paintings evoke strong memories for people and are lovely images too, so what’s not to absolutely adore?
My thanks to Dave, then, and come on readers – what do you remember of milk, bread – perhaps coal – and other goods delivered by horse and cart?
Please do let Dave and the readership know what you remember – comment here, mail me on BrownhillsBob at googlemmil dot com or whisper in my ear on social media.
