Harry Shaw started a milk business from his car. He would load the milk from the family farm on Griswold St. and sell it in glass bottles. He built a little block building on South St. in Middleport for his dairy.
After the milk was processed in Lockport at the Gascoyne Dairy, Shaw would deliver it in the Village of Middleport. He sold homemade ice cream there too. At Shaw’s Dairy it cost 5 cents for a double dip cone in the summer. He had chocolate milk in the winter. He sold the milk to the school. The kids especially liked the chocolate.
Shaw’s son, Donald Shaw, ran the dairy later on and then sold it to Frank Houseman. Competition was tough and it went out of business.
