Object description

Fifteen year old Rose Brown of Marcia Road, Walworth, has taken the place of a milkman who was called up for the Forces. Every morning at 8 o'clock Rose starts out on her rounds pushing a heavily laden milk barrow. At 2 pm she finishes and returns to the dairy to give a hand in the bottling department until 5 pm. She volunteered for the job when the milkman was called up and no-one else could be found to take the job. Photo shows: Rose Brown pushing her milk barrow as she proceeds on her rounds.
