“This is such an evocative 'Australian Story', and although I never received milk from a horse-cart, I do have a strong and fond early memory of the Store Baker in Newcastle delivering bread to our house in New Lambton when I was a small child. I was allowed to hold my mother's hand and walk down our driveway to feed a carrot to what I remember as the biggest horse I had ever seen...
In later years my mother told me that the young man delivering the bread was rather too fond of talking with all the house-wifes, and on more than one occassion the cart-horse taught him a lesson in time management by jolting off the hand break and heading back to the Store, at a very fast trot. It made for some excitement in the suburbs!”
