Radway Dairy Display

A recent gift to the New London County Historical Society is this 1940s counter display for the Radway Dairy, a business that was located in New London. It’s a motorized advertising piece — the head of the cow goes up and down, as does the chicken, and the scroll in the middle rotates as well. It stands about 2.5 feet tall and is constructed of painted wood and sheet metal with paper images glued to the surface.
