The announcement that Dairy Crest’s last glass milk bottle plant is to close has prompted a flood of nostalgia for a former staple of the British street.
The era of the glass milk bottle has left a legacy. Not least memories of the way milk used to be advertised.
But the nostalgia relates as much to the diminished presence of the milkman as the bottles themselves. Their ever-presence in British lives made them ripe for pop culture parody – mainly the faintly ludicrous idea of them having adulterous relationships with lonely women.
