Cyclists at Sabrina's Sweet Things

Further to picture #451, picture #452 and picture #453, I thought this photo will be of interest.
Taken today, 8th July 2014, at "Sabrina's Sweet Things" (no comment by men of a certain age!) to show that cyclists still stop off in Handcross High Street for refreshment.
Not quite the exact spot as picture #451 but only a few yards away.

This establishment was known as Devonshire Dairy in the 1950s-1960s when milk processing production became collectively centralised.
A lorry would squeeze down the side of the shop and deliver milk in half, one pint, and two pint bottles, with a third of a pint for the school.
Les Moore (picture #817) was the stalwart who organised and delivered to every household each day including Sundays, at a time before domestic refrigerators were produced.
If you are lucky to still have milk delivery man, use and support him!
