1954 Eltham Processing Centre, Pasteurising Plant. Anne Pordage comments (on Francis Frith website) "My dad worked at the Express Dairy bottling depot opposite side of the road to the church. I often went to watch and be treated to a drink in their canteen, as a child I found it fascinating watching the bottles being cleaned and refilled with milk. Unfortunately, it was closed and moved to Morden in Surrey so Dad had to travel there everyday on his motorbike!" (Express Salesman's Manual Fourth Edition)
