The Silverdale & District Co-operative Society and he Burslem & District Co-operative Society had numerous shops across the Potteries, Newcastle-under-Lyme and neighborhoods. Bottom left is a milk check issued by the Burslem & District Co-operative Society. Milk checks were left on doorsteps to inform the Co-op milk delivery man as to how many bottles of milk you required. The checks were bought in advance from Co-op shops, so no cash was exchanged on delivery and householders did not need to be at home when the milk man came.
