1890's J Clarke & Sons Hand Cart. Alan Bissell comments "The Clarke family moved from Paddington to Richmond in 1890 to take over the dairy business that had already been established at 14 Upper Hill Street, Richmond - known as Sudbrook Farm. By 1901 the Clarke family had expanded their successful dairy business and opened a second shop in the newly constructed Cambridge Parade in Richmond Road, East Twickenham. Chris Forrester added "They later amalgamated with Hornby Dairies to become Hornby & Clarke. Miss Hornby lived at the big cottage opposite the pond at Palewell Common. I used to deliver her papers when I worked at Maynards Newsagents.(Courtesy Twickenham Park Residents Association)
