Photographic History of Eton Wick and Eton - Businesses - The Old Dairy and Eton Court, Eton

The Windsor & Eton Dairies building was situated next to photographers Hills & Saunders in the High Street. It was a 15th century house with a central hall and solar wings, with many alterations over the years. After much deterioration the dairy was demolished in 1967. Many of the older residents of Eton will remember the small statue of the golden cow in the window, how cool it was to step down into the dairy on a hot summer's day, and of being served by Rosie, the auburn-haired assistant. 

The lower photograph shows the entrance to Eton Court car park looking towards the High Street. Part of the Austin Leigh and Baldwin Institute is visible on the left of the photograph. What the shops that can be seen in the High Street were selling then cannot be discerned from the picture.
