I lived at 15 Malta Street, West Ivanhoe. The dairy you are referring to was the Thornlow (I think that’s how it was spelt) Dairy. I was born in 57 and can just remember horses and clinking bottles early in the morning. Then of coarse everything changed. I went to school @ St. Bernadette’s with T. Lynch, B. Williams, Corrine and Karen Hope and Pauline Thornlow.
We Thornycrofts are now scattered all over the place. From Melton, Kew, to Mortlake and Willcannia.
