Thanks to the Jensen family for donating their father’s Bedford Farms milkman uniform. William “Bill” Jensen was a milkman from 1958-1966 and the family donated 2 uniforms in pristine condition. The uniform included a black and white striped jacket with dark maroon details, matching striped overalls, black and white check overalls, and two caps – all with a yellow and red “Bedford Farms” patch.
What really makes this donation special are the photos, archival materials, and biography that the family provided. See below for a wonderful picture of Bill wearing his uniform in a Bedford Farms delivery van. Rather than donating just a uniform, the family donated a story that we can share with generations to come.
