Horse Drawn Milk Float
Horse Drawn Milk Float
Acquired by the Museum:1980
Current State:As acquired, unrestored
A metal bodied horse drawn milk float body, originally owned by Chivers Farm of Histon, Cambridgeshire and was obtained by the Museum in 1980. Its date of construction is not known, but it is assumed to date from circa 1920/1930.

Although not a local vehicle, it is typical of those used in the Ipswich area, and will be restored to a suitable 'local' livery e.g. Ipswich Co-op.
