Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for the following memories.

Bryan wrote:

Priestfield

"When I lived Priestfield, the St Cuthbert's milk horse and delivery man were best pals with every kid in the area.

It was a grey horse that was totally in love with the milkman and vice versa. Needless to say the horse knew the milk round as well, if not better than, the delivery man - and followed him tirelessly up and down the streets with very few words or signals passing between them.

Of course, they were out in all weathers and I recall the horse being fitted with special 'crampon-type' shoes to avoid it slipping on the snow and ice."

Bellevue

"Years later, when I lived on the corner of McDonald Road and Bellevue Road, next to Broughton School, the St Cuthbert's milk horse got his food nose-bag right outside our door every morning

The horse would wander his way slowly along the length of McDonald Road from Leith Walk, keeping a close eye on the milkman as he went in and out of the tenements. When the horse got to nose-bag territory, he froze on the spot, his hooves super-glued to the ground -  totally immoveable, until the nose-bag was produced and its contents lovingly devoured. Then, and only then, could the horse be persuaded to resume the delivery round."

"Here are a couple of photos one of a dairy horse around 1900 and one of  the St Cuthbert's farrier and Silver in 1985."

My Grandfather

"In his days at St. Cuthbert's co-op, Sean Connery delivered milk together with my maternal grandfather (now deceased), James Shedden of Oxgangs.

I can remember when I stayed with my grandparents, my grandad often brought the horse's nose-bag home with him, though I can't tell you why.  We were fascinated by it and liked to give apples for the horses during their deliveries.

Horse-drawn Carts - 1985

     St Cuthbert's Milk Deliveries  -  January 1985 ©

"Itís marvellous to have captured the St Cuthbertís milk carts as late as 1985.  I knew of their continuing existence then but didnít feel sufficiently moved at the time to think of recording the survivors."

Roofed Cart

"Whatís interesting for me is that the cart I rode as a boy was roofed. One sat high up alongside the driver on a step-like structure.

As a boy in the 1950s, one could fantasize that one was Dale Robertson on a Wells Fargo stagecoach.  I loved the sound of the brake being applied when the handle was turned high up on the cart."

Other Types of Cart

"Are you aware of any photos of that type of cart?"

Kim Traynor:  Tollcross, Edinburgh:  September 19+20, 2009.

I don't know of any photos of the type of St Cuthbert's cart that Kim asks about.  If you know of any, please email me, then I'll pass on your message to Kim.

Roofed Carts

"Like Kim Traynor, the St Cuthberts milk carts I remember best of all had a roof.  I think it was only in their latter days that the roofs disappeared for some reason."

Film Clip

"The horses and milk carts can be seen very well on a Scottish Screen Archives 1967 film clip on the National Library of Scotland website."

Bryan Gourlay, Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland:  September 21, 2006

Bryan added:

"It will be interesting to see if anyone recognises the road the horse is travelling along at the beginning of the clip - or even the chap driving the cart and reversing it in the depot.

Although the road looks familiar to me, I canít quite place it."

Horses

"I was part of the team that took over St Cuthbert's Milk.  I had worked for Manchester-based co-op (CWS).

My job was to organize the transport.  This meant, sadly, that the horses had to go.  All the horses went out on loan  to as far away as Shetland.  They went out on loan so that we could check that they were being looked after."

Thank you to Danny Callaghan for telling me about his dad, uncle and other members of his family who worked at The Store.  Speaking about the milk deliveries, Danny wrote:

My Uncle

"My dad's brother, Mike Callaghan started as a Cart Boy and went on to be a Store milkman with Saughton area as his patch. 

He loved his horses.  One day, his horse and cart ran away and in the effort to stop the horse running into the Water of Leith he grabbed the reins and fell and the cart went right up his side.

I remember him being in hospital for a considerable time and he was never able to go back to his milk round. 

One of my Uncle Mike's milk laddies was Tom Connery.  My uncle signed off his first time sheet."

From Age Seven

"I worked with the milk horses from the age of  seven and know all about them.  I also worked in the stables."

Ginger

"Ginger was the first milk horse that I worked with.  The milkman was called John the Miner.  After that, it was Jimmy  Hume  (Wally)

Ginger had a great life after he finished with the milk.  He  ended his life at a children family park in Leven.   He died at a good age of 35 years.

I  have such a good story to tell about how i taught him to beg and how i  found out that he was in Fife."

Thank you to John Boal who wrote:

Gypsy

"When i was 15, in 1968, I used to go every weekend to St Cuthbert's in the early morning in the hope of being chosen as a delivery helper.

I became friends with Jimmy Small who was the driver doing the Stockbridge run. The horse was called Gypsy and he knew every start and stop on the delivery run."

Stockbridge

"Often, I would deliver the milk to 17A Danube Street and Dora would ask me to nip up to the shop for some messages, and she would give me a 10 bob tip.

Jimmy, the driver, lived somewhere around The Inch in Edinburgh.

I became friends with a guy who lived in Leslie Place who's mother had a 3 wheel disability car. When I told my mother I'd been in Stockbridge, she told me she was brought up in a single end house in Cheyne St.  I just happened to deliver milk to the exact same  house.

I recently went on a walk there but the only thing left of the flat is the fireplace embedded on the wall of houses still standing.

My German shepherd dog who recently died after 12 years with me was named Gypsy after the horse I worked with, back then. 

I used to hang about after we got back from deliveries so I could walk the horses back round to Grove St stables as I loved horses. These were great days."

'Whitson Mick'

"Many have commented on the site about the store milkman in the Whitson area, my Uncle Mick, a man always with a smile.

Mick Callaghan on his milk round - probably somewhere around Whitson, Edinburgh  -  When? ©

We have trawled through the family photos to find one of Mick with his beloved horse and we hit the jackpot.      Guessing from the dress of the child, my uncles age would probably have been taken late-50s.

Uncle Mick always wore his cap and great coat to keep out the weather and his 'milk bottle' glasses and of course the smile.   No Gore-Tex protective work wear with fluorescent stripes in those days!

Maybe you recognise yourself as the lucky child or know exactly where picture was taken and when.    We would be interested to hear."

Milk Floats

"I can answer some of the question you have been asked about St Cuthbert's milk floats as I was employed in their workshops as an apprentice.

From what I recall used Scammel chassis were sent to the mechanical workshops where reconditioned steering and axles were fitted. A new Perkins diesel engine was also fitted.

The Cabin and body on the milk floats were made of wood by the coach building dept. This work was all carried out at St Cuthbert's transport dept. in Gardners Crescent, Edinburgh, supervised by the transport manager Archie Prentice."

My Love of Horses

"My first memory of the milk horses was when I moved to Claremont Court, Broughton when I was about 9 years old.  That was when my love of horses began."

Wally and Ginger

"We had a few different milkmen and horses until Ginger came along.  He was brought over from Ireland like most of the milk horses and was only 4 years old.

The milkman then was Wally (Jimmy Hume)."

Weekend Milk Run

"On Saturdays and Sundays, I would get the bus at 5.05am to Fountainbridge and walk down to Grove Street to the stables to wait for Wally to pick up Ginger. 

We would then walk up to the dairy and get the milk cart, then down Lothian Road, along Princes Street and down to Bellevue.  At that time, milk was delivered 7 days a week.  Only on Christmas Day and New Year would we deliver double, the day before."

St Mary's School

"I went to St Mary's York Lane school and would listen for Ginger coming along Albany Street on his way going back to the dairy."

The Stables

"I was often in trouble for skipping school to be with the horses in the stables and would go there after school until the stables closed at 7pm.

The gaffer then was Jock Johnston, his deputy was Jock Kemp and the blacksmith was Tam Eckford."

Leaving School

"I left school at the age of 14Ĺ and started work as a panel beater.  That lasted about 9 months.  Then I went on to do painting and decorating and, again, that did not last very long."

Working in the Stables

"I must have been about 16 when I started working full-time with the milk, and when I became 18 years old, I was offered a job working in the stables.

I would be picked up at my house at 3.30am and taken to the stables to start at 4 o' clock.  I would feed, water and harness the horses ready for the milkmen who would come at around 6 o' clock.

Here are a few photos of  Ginger outside the blacksmith shop at the stables."

Visits to Ginger'

"I would go and see Ginger now and then, and would take my children to see him.

Many years later, after the stables had closed, someone told me that Ginger was still alive and was living on a children's farm in Fife. 

I phoned about, and after a long time looking and asking questions, we discovered that he was in Leven.  I found him one Saturday afternoon."

"We visited Ginger 2 or 3 times, but when we went back in April this year, we were told that he had passed away.  He had lived a long life.  Twice, the Police had looked at him becoming a police horse, but that never happened.  He was a great horse and a great character."

Ginger

"I really enjoyed the photos and reading about John Tait and Ginger.

When I was a youngster I lived in Logie Green Gardens.  I remember being sent out, often, to bring home some of the droppings from the milk hoses in Logie Green Road.

These St Cuthbert's horses were obviously well looked after (in Ginger's case at least).  They could so easily have been maltreated. I wonder if John has the dates for these photos?"

Patrick Lindsay, Perth, Western Australia, Australia:  December 18, 2013

Hi Patrick: 

I think that the first six of John's photos would probably have been taken around the mid-1970s, and the last two would probably have been taken within since about 2010.

'Pal'

"To the best of our knowledge 'Mick' was called 'Pal' when he delivered the milk to 6 Whitson Walk.  This was in the early-1950s, perhaps about 1952.

'Pal' used to stop in for his breakfast every Sunday morning, whilst the horse nibbled on 'Jock' Fraser's hedge.

The son of the house was Alan Fraser.  He used to help 'Pal' on his rounds.  One day, he fell under the cart's wheel breaking his arm.

It's wonderful to see the picture and to experience all of the memories it evokes for so many of us."
