Home delivery was a feature of life up to about 1960. In recentt years this has made a comeback in the shape of Tesco and Ocado vans.
This horse drawn trap in the MK Museum was a common enough feature of Wolverton's streets when I was a boy. Bread was obviously not heavy so this light cart was quite adequate to carry the driver and his deliveries.
This one is a Co-op vehicle. We got our bread from King's, on the corner of Radcliffe Street and Church Street - now pulled down to make way for the Agora. Mr King used to come round, usually twice a week in the afternoons with his bread deliveries.
I posted about this two years ago here.
