(2 1/2p) a quart in winter an 5d. (2 1/4p) in summer.&nbsp; From 1931 to 1934 it fell to 4 1/2d. in summer.&nbsp; Homemade butter was 1s. 6d. per lb (7 1/2p) and cheese 1s. 0d. (5p).&nbsp; I only made butter when I had a surplus o fmilk, as it takes 3 1/2 to 4 gallons of milk to produce 1 quart of cream which is needed to make 1 lb of butter.&nbsp; As milk cost 1s. 4d (7p) per gallon, it was a far from profitable occupation!!&nbsp; Also the milk had to be run through a separator to produce the cream, and then churned to produce the butter; in all 2 to 2 1/2 hours.&nbsp; In the winter the milk was 1s.8 1/2d per gallon.&nbsp; The man holding the pony is Bill Coxon, who worked for me for several years.&nbsp; He was brother to Jack, who ran a greengrocer's business from the shop in Moor Street which is now Spondon Florist (1987).&nbsp; At this time there was no bottled milk; the churns had a tap at the bottom from which we filled buckets and measured the milk from it into the customers' jugs or basins.&nbsp; Before the Milk Marketing Board was formed (mid 1930s), dairymen contracted with the farmers direct at the end of September, to start 1st October for one year, to buy, say, 30 gallons per day, plus or minus 3 or 4 gallons.&nbsp; Cows were not sufficiently obliging to give the same amount every day for a year!</p><p>Guy Brighouse, 1987</p> http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/haymaking#comments Geographical Locations Footpaths 1920-1929 Mon, 26 Jul 2010 09:55:25 +0000 admin 490 at http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk Footpath http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/footpath-1 <img src="http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/220x147/Spondon History 123.jpg" /><br/><p>Dale Road to Ockbrook Settlement.</p> http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/footpath-1#comments Geographical Locations Footpaths 1980-1989 Sun, 25 Jul 2010 19:30:44 +0000 admin 482 at http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk Footpath http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/footpath-0 <img src="http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/220x147/Spondon History120.jpg" /><br/> http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/footpath-0#comments Geographical Locations Footpaths 1980-1989 Sun, 25 Jul 2010 19:14:03 +0000 admin 479 at http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk Footpath http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/archive-image/footpaths/footpath <img src="http://www.spondonhistory.org.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/220x147/Spondon History 117.jpg" /><br/><p>Footpath betwen Sancroft Road and Lousy Graves Lane.&nbsp;
