Recently, Mrs. William Elliott over in New Kingston contacted me because she had photographs of the last load of milk her husband's farm delivered to the Bovina Creamery on its last day of operation. I was thrilled to see these wonderful snapshots taken by Mrs. Elliot herself on March 31, 1973. They pretty much tell the story in the captions she wrote on the photos.

Many thanks to Mrs. Elliott for sharing these. And to her daughter Sally Elliott Scrimshaw for letting her mom know of my interest in photos like these.
