Dear DMC

There was a fine photograph in yesterday’s Guardian newspaper of a milk bottle collection.  I believe it belonged to “Ken” who will be familiar to many readers from his appearance in Gordon Thorburn’s book Men and Sheds (page 62).

Sadly the photo is not available on line, so here is a related link.  Does milk bottle collecting qualify as a safe form of excitement?

Dear Steve

Yes, Milk Bottle Collecting qualifies as a safe form of excitement. We have a category for this on our Collections and Museums page. I see now, however, that the page needs work. We’ll be getting to that soon. Click here to see it’s dilapidated state.
