taken 3 years ago, near to London, City of London, Great Britain

Former Dairy Supply Company Limited building, Coptic Street
Former Dairy Supply Company Limited building, Coptic Street
The Dairy Supply Company Ltd. was one of two companies set up in the late 19th century by Sir George Barham (LinkExternal link ): Express Dairies brought milk into cities by rail, whilst the Dairy Supply Company provided the hardware that made this possible, namely milk-churns (invented by Barham). The plaque seen here features a churn, of course. After his death, his two sons inherited one company each: Express Dairies went on to be a dominant brand under its own name, whilst the Dairy Supply Company became a component of its major rival, Dairy Crest.
The building became a Pizza Express in the 1960s: apparently Britain's oldest branch.
