Best Answer

My grandfather, Edward Kaveny was the general manager of the Englewood branch of Bowman Dairy in the 1920s 1930s. My husband's great-grandfather, John Klasema, worked at Bowman Dairy in Chicago for 40+ years. He delivered milk with a horse drawn wagon, I've been told, on the Miracle Mile. My Great Grandfather, August Lundsteadt,was the safety manager at the dairy in Chicago for 40 years,and retired in 1955.

The name currently covered with a hanging temp sign but I ride pass it daily. Channel 11 aired a fund raiser to purchase videos of Chicago's history circa 1910 and 1930 with a small donation. I saw a photo of that same intersection in the 1930's.I believe the Bowman Dairy was actually north. There is an area called Bowmanville north of Foster and east of Western.There was a Bowman Dairy Co. at 43rd Street South and State Street in Chicago. There was also one at 66th street and Wentworth Avenue. My father delivered routes from both garages from about 1945 up to when they closed. I'm not sure when these facilities were built or went into operation. These were mainly garages for the milk wagons and horses and later the milk trucks. Milk was not processed in these locations. My Brothers and I helped my Dad deliver milk each morning. Dad died but Mom remembers names of others that worked there and are still living. Want more info, contact me.The company I work for has a 1917 Walker Electric Truck with original Bowman Dairy lettering still on it. The address given is 140 West Ontario.

Do horses give you milk?

Yes and no. Mare's milk isn't considered the type of milk that could be distributed to the human population. However, historically, like in the days of the Old West, when a woman couldn't give enough breast milk to feed her newborn and the family owned no milk cow, they would use a mare that they owned that had just recently foaled to milk out and give milk to the baby. In today's world, chances of this happening is just about nil, except in possibly more poorer countries.
