I Remember The Milkman's Signal

God gave us memories that we might have roses in December. ~J.M. Barrie

The Milkman Is Now Gone But We Remember


Originally milk needed to be delivered to houses daily as poor refrigeration meant it would quickly spoil. The near-ubiquity of refrigerators in homes in the developed world has decreased the need for frequent milk delivery over the past half-century and made the profession shrink in many localities, and disappear totally in others.

Ok, what is this????

It is a device that allows the customers to signal to the milkman what they want on a specific day.

One day, as a joke, I pulled up all the signals and left it before I went to school.  Needless to say Mom was pretty angry when she had garlic ice cream and strawberry butter.

The Milk Truck And Milk Bottle Were Common
