'Humanized Milk for Delicate Infants and Children' and 'Sterilized Milk for Household and General Use' are listed, with 'Special Milk for Infants and Invalids' also available.
Conveniently, families could be waited on 'three times daily', and there's also 'Finest Dairy Butters' for sale at 1/2 (6p) and 1/- (5p) as week as 'New laid Eggs.'
This contemporary view shows the original Victorian buildings intact, but the shop front has been considerably altered.
The premises were being used by a children's clothing store, 'Greater Tomorrow,' although the 'Shop To Let' sign reflects the high turnover of shops along this stretch of Atlantic Road.
