The Doorstep Collection


The name "The Doorstep Collection" originated from the idea that the majority of Milk Bottles in my personal collection must have at one time or another been delivered to a doorstep somewhere in Britain. In May 2001 we moved from a Bungalow with Garage and Garden Shed etc' to a First Floor Flat without a Garage and Garden Shed etc' so I reluctantly had to dispose of my complete collection of Milk Bottles. These web pages are a tribute to my collection and will be a lasting memory of many years searching the hedgerows and woodlands for additions to "The Doorstep Collection"
