Thompson's Dairies was a proud family business, started in 1882 in Beverley, East Yorkshire. The firm's milk floats were an established part of everyday life in the area - from the days of the horse and cart to the iconic electric floats.

Sadly the dairy was forced to close because of pressure from the supermarkets - and they are far from alone.
