Devonshire Dairy, Handcross

Further to recent comments regards Les Moore on picture #1193, some years ago I found myself in a garage at the rear of the shop where Les stored a few relics of his dairy days. He allowed me to take these Devonshire Dairy cream cartons.
I wonder how many have survived the passage of time. Perhaps these are all that remain; a legacy of those now far-off days.
These are now in safe custody in The Old Police House.

I am obliged to Brian Funnell of Slaugham for allowing me to take a picture of an old milk bottle from his collection of bygones.

Are there any more collectables out there of the dairy, or any of the other village shops?
