These milk cans were commonly used by farmers in the previous century to transport their milk and cream from the farm to the depo’s.
Hierdie melkkanne was baie bekend in die vorige eeu. Dis gereeld by spoorweg “sy-stasies” gesien waar boere dit afgelaai het sodat dit per trein na die melkverwerkingsfabrieke kon gaan.

    Piesta, reading the description put a big smile on my face. I don’t know how this worked on the other continent, but I was a child and I remember grocery stores serving milk from these type of canisters. That milk did not have preserves; we had to boil it and keep it refrigerated. I remember that once here in US I bought a pack of milk and forgot it in the trunk of my car for couple of days. Now, we are in Florida, heat and sunshine, but the milk did not altered at all.. I would go back to the old times at any time :))

  • So glad it brought back sweet memories!
