An earlier photograph suggests that the Maypole opened in 1900. There are also later photographs from the 1960s so we can deduce that the shop was a stalwart of Spring Gardens for at least six decades. This image shows Maypole Dairy at its most conspicuous and stylish. It promotes itself as a dairy whereas in later times it seems more occupied with selling “coffee, teas, fish and steaks”. It is interesting to see how a business changes its produce with the times.
