Little milk bottle

Post by digirushy » Sat Jan 05, 2019 5:58 pm

So not technically a dug bottle but it is old.
I found this several years ago whilst out on the beach with the family.
The phone numbers only have 3 digits so must be fairly old.

Really? Ours was always warm in summer and frozen solid in winter! At least we mostly managed to avoid the pleasure of getting rickets though. ::g

They brought the milk into the classroom after it was delivered (all year round) so was always warm :(

I had buckets of milk given to me at home (nicely chilled :D ) and I certainly am not old enough to have considered rickets a risk. Especially as I had parents that felt playing outside, wether the sun was shining or not was compulsory =))

I remember the 3 digit telephone numbers really well .. it cost 10p for 3 minutes call home in 1970 .. that was a packet of fags then... used to ask the operator .. "Please can I have Bradenstoke 256" "Basingstoke 256" the operator would reply.."NO... BRADENSTOKE 256" I would shout back ... thats the sort of service you got for a 3 min telephone call in 1970, the good old days.

Being quite elderly, I remember that the milkman used to deliver a concentrated orange juice in similar bottles. The sort of stuff which could strip the enamel off your teeth just by looking at it.

Happy New Year to one and all
