Dairyman at the Hampton Dairy

Rollover image to zoom

c. 1930

This gelatin print of the dairy at Hampton shows a building that remained largely unchanged from the 19th century through the 20th century. In addition to being consumed on the estate, milk from the Hampton dairy was sold commercially until mid-century. The operation employed several workers including the dairyman seen here carrying a milk can.
