- I remember those trucks delivering milk and eggs up Shelley st 😁
- The horse and buggies wow Guelph st was just one lane then
- Was that Nobles dairy?
- yes it was.
- Can someone please tell me where this was?
- corner of Maple and Guelph sts..
- I remember seeing the trucks & the horse drawn ones as well delivering milk etc. around town .
- That was at corner of guelph st and maple avenue
- I think it's a lawyer office now. Kentucky fried chicken was next door
- Our first field trip from Chapel street walked up to the Georgetown Dairy. Got a tour and ice cream.
- Wow. This picture is a treasure , sure brings back memories!
- The best icecream cones 🎉🎉
- Best cones. Love the delivery trucks
- That goes a long way back. The milk was in glass bottles and in the winter , the cream would sometimes freeze out of the top.
- I was telling about the “milk man” and horse cart just the other day. Love this
- Was that owned by Ed Tyers?
- I am friends with his granddaughters - knew their Dad well!!
- we moved into Mr.Tyers home in 1981 so i am always interested in any information. Not the original one on the corner but his second home next door for just he and his wife.
- We are at 24 Delrex Blvd. Like I mentioned we are next door to Mr. Tyers original house
- I remember milk delivery. Our delivery man was named Mel. Because our Dad worked at the dairy and knew Mel, he sometimes stopped in for a cup of coffee. I’m not sure Irwin Noble would have approved.
- I believe your milk delivery man's name was Mel Taylor.
- Wow before KFC and the old gas station
- My wife grew up in the area and remembers the horses
- I totally remember the horse drawn milk wagons when I was a kid.. Thank you so much for posting a treasured childhood memory.. Merry Christmas!
- My husband worked there in the 1960's
- I remember going there for lunch on Fridays with my friend Lorna Nicholson. We always ordered a hamburger and homemade coconut cream pie.
- I remember the horse drawn milk wagon , waking up early Saturday morning so I could feed the horses sugar cubes.
- I would give everything to go back to sweet and simple times like that.
- Another great memory..thanks Bonnie!
- I remember that as well. Best pie ever!!!
- Oh the memories
- blvd. boys would go in on a hot day, each bought a 'brick' of ice cream and a jar of topping, then enjoyed in the field behind the dairy bar. that was a loonngg time ago
- Great memories.....thanks for posting!
- About once a week mom would give us enough to get a Sandwich and a pint of Chocolate Milk for lunch it was real close to Wrigglesworth :)
- Lemon Ciffon Ice cream !
- Jim Edwards and Carman Maltby both worked for Mr Noble in the late 50`s and 60`s
- We had milk delivery bye those horse drawn wagons Bill Handy
- Best ever strawberry milkshakes! <3
- Good picture !
- I have these old milk tokens from way back .says maple leaf dairy on it..Anyone remember these
- Georgetown dairy had aluminium tokens
- This is great. I wish I could've lived this era
- My favorite ( after Kay´s, between Wrigglesworth and the high school) after-school stop! Couldn´t count the number of milkshakes and/or cones I enjoyed at their milk-bar. Paid off after a while, because A_Lorraine and I went out for a good while....and we were a couple at the Prom as well. Anyone remember the absolutely awful photos the pro photographer took at these proms? In the decorated gym, "Evening in Paris", I believe.... and a smashing Kool-Aid fruity punch... and then the trips outside for a real punch!
- Loved going there every Saturday for sundae! Oh for the slim days back when that was possible 😝
- No one believed me when I said our milk was delivered by horse and cart...... have been lying about my age for a while now. Lol. I would love running out with a carrot to feed old ginger..... Also remember our egg man who would just let himself in if we weren't home and put the eggs in the fridge. Mom would leave the money on the table for him.
- My Grandparents egg lady was Mrs. Stark... we always called her Mrs. Stork... she looked a little like a stork..
- Mrs. Stark delivered to us as well, every Saturday morning.
- Look at the old trucks & I remember the horse & wagons too,Linda!
- we had the horse and wagon also ,I would ride with them sometimes . The driver was Mr. Len Murdock from Glen Williams , would ride to the stables at Maple Ave dead end.
- I remember the horse drawn wagons on Chapel Street. The milkman would deliver a wooden case of bottles milk to our house a Christmas. We drank a lit of milk. Remember how the milk would freeze and the cream push out the top of the bottle!
- You are right Johnny that was the best $0.35 i ever spent!!
- Dairy had a wonderful ice cream maker, my dad Lester Henderson. They made delicious peach ice cream. It’s hard to find peach ice cream now and whenever I do, it’s never as good. 😄
- used to love helping him make the ice cream
- Ahhh maybe it was your help Mary that made the ice cream so good.
- Where was this located?
- this was located at the corner of Guelph Street n Maple Avenue , across from the POST OFFICE in GEORGETOWN ...
- Remember getting a ride up the street when young. loved horses
- At the corner of Guelph and Mountainview, I believe
- exactly. SE corner !
- Went there often and then worked at the back when it was Bill Smith's Auto Parts
- Vivid memories of going there for ice cream..great place!!
- My Mother worked there in the evenings from 6-10 pm after my youngest brother was born. I was 10 1/2-11 when she started. It was my job to put him to bed, so she could work 😊
- I don't think I knew that Linda.
- He had a different special flavour of ice cream every week!!
- My mom Lorrine From worked at the dairy for many years
- Corner of Maple?
- Owned by Joy and Irwin Noble, used to be on Main St. Where Goodfellas is now located.
- I remember my mom telling me that I walked from College St, up to the Dairy, pushing my doll carriage (my mom was following me to see where I was going) and it was to see Rita Bain who worked there. Her husband Clarence was the stationery engineer at the high school back in the early 1950's. I often wonder if their daughter Gloria is still alive.
- Best milkshakes!
