Old Horse Drawn Milk wagon and truck from two towns I lived in . Remember Milk delivery :-) It was great to wake in Am to milk. orange juice,eggs,butter in your milk slot on house . I knew them in trucks not horse drawn . But like all things it ended in early 1970 here .
No idea what category to put this in ? I knew the family that ran the Horse drawn wagon

    In the 50's we still had one old guy who drove a horse driven milk wagon in our neighborhood. On Saturdays he would let us kid get in the wagon and ride along on the route. Once he let me hold the reins so I could "steer" the horse. The horse knew the route better than I did. He would stop at the end of one street and Kenny, the driver would tie the horse to a telephone pole and walk down a dirt road with the delivery. One day my Mom remembers seeing me riding the horse as some of us did, backwards, so I could talk to Kenny inside the wagon! Wonderful memories!

    We always got our milk at the store, but once in a while we would run out & someone would go over to my grandparents place to get some.
    The only problem was that all the cream had been separated out & all we got was skim milk (yuck)!
    That was like putting water on your cereal.

    Funny i remember having these metal boxes saved in our cellar, actually i have a few others also. i don't remember what i used them for.I was a teenager, dead fish. or hidden beer.
  11. filmnet filmnet, 2 years ago
    Our boxes left on stairs was metal with would left the milk cold for 1 day.

    Ij don't remember metal boxes when the milk was hand delivered, we got a box later on when a truck came by. I do remember the cardboard caps and about and inch or so of yummy cream at the top that had separated! Our small town also had it's own dairy down the road and when we rode by on our bicycles someone would quite often come out with a small glass bottle of chocolate milk for us to drink. Those were the days! Maybe that is why I am so attached to glass pieces now:)

    filmnet and cindy my last house a few years ago still had the built in window for milk delivery in it . There was a double wood door opening in house . Milkman opened from outside and put it in the opening on a ledge . I could unlock it from inside house and reach in and get it without going outside . I loved it and kept old milk bottles in it . I also remember the outside box from 60's :-)
