Just as a matter of interest I had this old paper passed on to me by the chappie who is printing the next book that I am having printed consisting of stories from veterans who went through WW2.
All proceeds will be passed on to a well known veteran charity.

It may interest those who like to look back over the years.
This is half of the front of the paper plus an advert out of the job vacancy section.
Note the price of the paper and the date.
The job wage was one of THE highest then.

It's so lovely to see this newspaper, in great condition too, the wages are certainly a lot different today Very Happy
Also seeing the short phone number there at the top for the Ironmongers, now as we know all have codes in front of them.
I wonder why the Milk changeover..

It was to do with dairymen having their own patch Tan so that they did not overlap each other. It was done more or less because of the rationing so that folks did not get more than their fair share. Each dairyman had his own customers in various parts of the town.

Very interesting Maisie, I also suspect that by reorganizing the deliveries in that way meant shorter journeys for the milkmen, resulting in a fuel saving where wagons or vans were used. Make life easier for the horses too.

Thankyou Maisie I like these old papers and the Adverts and seeing how things have changed so much or stayed the same mostly there are some books you can get they are large but they tell history from the papers like WW2 and then the 60s and 70s My Dad had one they can be very interesting ,
Thank You

Yes I like to read the old papers too .
Fascinating how things have changed in everyday life.
Who would have thought when sitting in an Anderson shelter during a bombing raid over 70 years ago I would be here today on a computer when all we had then, IF we were lucky, was a relay radio.

I see that the job had a salary of £2.10 shillings just the for our Joelle. I would think Nev got the fuel savings plus time right for most of these men would also be the ARP, Dads Army or working most of the night on Ack-Ack guns and the cival defense jobs, so any shortening of the day jobs would be good for the war effort.
