Pictured in Crofton Road, Milton, is the horse and cart belonging to Arthur Edward Shrubsole (Ted) who delivered all around the Milton area between 1935-55. The picture belongs to Doreen Watts who remembers the horse walking along the street and stopping at each customer's house. He knew the round better than Ted it seems.
