Yes! Our milk was delivered by a man who looked just like this!! :)
Milk Man, Milk Bottle, Baby Boomer
I don't remember ever seeing our milk man but I definitely remember having glass milk bottles delivered to our front porch where our wooden milk box was...
The milk man...REALLY!!! I was really little then but in the early 60's I remember that the milk man delivered milk to your door. He put it in the metal box that we kept on the door step that kept it cool.--my dad was a milkman.....ms
The milkman came twice a week....empties by the front door and a gallon of fresh whole and horribly high cholesterol left....glass bottles....awesome tasting. The Good Old Days....SH
Milk Delivery. My grandparents had a box on their front porch that was there long after milk came in cartons. No one ever used the front door. There was also a cast iron Iron that held the basement door open.
Milk Delivery - I loved the sound of the glass bottles as the milk man delivered milk it would wake me up - great memory
A milk man came to my Grandmother's house...she left a note for chocolate milk.....glass bottles
Mr Timmerman was our milk man. Early 70's
Nothing found for Baby Boomers
Intro I heard myself growling the boys last week: "Havn't you already had your glass of milk today?" and was appalled. Milk is nation building stuff for Kiwi's in more ways than one. Our entire economy for decades and decades has rested on dairy produce and for as many years, probably, our young bodies were built up with pints and pints of calcium rich milk; not that modern tasteless 'skinny' trim milk you buy today but real, full cream milk. We were not a wealthy family growing up, in fact looking back I think we were quite poor but I don't recall being hungry. Dad worked three jobs while doing his apprenticeship and Mum was a stay-at-home Mum raising 4 children - and she wasn't even 21! Breakfast was Weetbix and milk - hot milk in winter. Winter evening meals always started with thick homemade vegetable soup made from the roast bone from an earlier meal and heavy with root vegetables, dried peas and alphabet noodles. It filled us up apparently, and made sure we got the nourishment growing bodies needed before the main course which was probably light on expensive meat. Every meal was finished with a milky pudding of some sort - rice pudding and bread and butter pudding being the favourites - which also ensured full tummies. In my Mum's school days every kid got given a free quarter pint of milk and an apple every day at school but by the time she had kids herself the 'scheme' had changed and milk was heavily subsidised so as to be affordable for everyone: 4 cents a pint - cheap as chips even on our limited budget and we had 6 - 8 pints delivered to the gate every day. Thats 28 - 35 litres of milk a week and I yell at my kids for not making 4 litres last the week out .... Recipe Combine together in a baking dish: 1 cup short grain rice half cup sugar 2 pints whole (full fat) milk (1200 mls) 2 oz butter 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 1/4 cup sultanas Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius or 375 degrees fahrenheit) for 50 - 60 minutes. Serves 8. PS Of course you could half the recipe but why would you when its so nice cold for breakfast :) Variation: use a can or 2 of coconut cream for some of the milk, add chopped dried apricots.

Full service ...Fill ‘er up.~~ remember gas station attendants? That was sooooo nice!! You could still get your gas put in for you into the 70's some places. Now that's a good ole days "good"memory!
Fill ‘er up. Remember gas station attendants? You were lucky if you could say "fill 'er up" rather than ask for $1's worth of gas!
Fill ‘er up. remember gas station attendants? Plus premium gifts...glasses, punch cups, recipe books, green stamps, top value stamps, plus $.23 cent a gallon gas. And they checked your oil and washed your windshield and checked the air in your tires before the gas was finished pumping!!
Fill ‘er up. Remember gas station attendants? They'd give you bubblegum after filling your tank, washing your windows, checking your oil, and the air pressure in your tires.

The Milk Man
Milk Man, Milk Box, Childhood Memories, 1920 1950S, Milkman Photos, 1950 S, Vintage Photo
The Milk Man: Milk was delivered directly to your front door and you paid at the end of the week. you could order whipping cream and chocolate milk and even eggnog at Christmas. if you had a box, you left your empty bottles, order and payment envelope inside.
The Milk Man. Granny left empty glass bottles in a crate at the front door and the Milkman would leave full bottles of milk. I was in college, visiting with Gran and the family my breaks, when the milkman still did this. A wonderful memory, as Granny and I would be drinking coffee together, with her Bible open on the table.
The Milk Man: Milk was delivered directly to your front door and you paid your milk at the end of the week-- c. 1950-60's

The First Earth Day 1970 The predictions: "between 1980 and 1989, 4 billion people, including 65 million Americans, would starve to death" from pollution-induced worldwide famine. Life Magazine wrote, "... by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half" On that day, we children of the 60s generation cleaned our playgrounds, picked trash out of the rivers, pestered our parents about Mother Nature, and planted saplings to prevent that scary future.
