In the 1970s I was a feckless, ambitionless wastrel (nothing changed there, then), and from time to time when in need of some readies I would put in a few months as a milkman, working out of the SCWS Glasgow South Creamery in Titwood Road. This was the pre-Thatcher era, when jobs were there for the asking, and if you didn't like the one you were in you could go next door and probably get another.The hours I worked there were bizarre, some days 4am-8am, others 4am-9pm, and it was a 6-day 48-hour week, but the short days did give me daylight hours at all seasons to wander round with a camera, and much of the 'Glasgow in the 70s' stuff I've put up on this site was a result of this.The doorstep delivery of milk was still just about viable at this time, and indeed there was competition from Cuthbertson's (in Vicarfield St.) and Scottish Farmers (Helen St. was it?) Oh yes, and Perrat's too, but already the supermarkets were undercutting the milkman by some margin and doorstep sales were dropping fast. Increasing ownership of fridge/freezers and cars contributed too. I worked for a wage plus commission, but not long after I finally left (early 1979) the Co-op introduced a franchise system whereby the roundsman leased his vehicle and bought the milk from them, effectively working for himself, but I don't think this delayed the demise of the business by many years.I'm not sure I enjoyed the work much, though it had its consolations, and I can't imagine why I felt the need to record it. This material, even more than the other Glasgow stuff, I dismissed as a worthless waste of time, but distance does lend some enchantment, and I can't remember (can you?) when I last saw an electric milk float on the streets of Glasgow, or for that matter a glass milk bottle on a doorstep.In these photos you will see quite a lot, rather too much I fear, of Morrison Electricar UGB 376H, for which I apologise, and the area I worked at the time, from Craigton via Moss Heights to Cardonald, has changed very little in 30 years so there is next to no historical interest in them. In fact I'm not at all sure it's worth posting this lot, but anyway here goes.
