Putting the milk bottles out (3 o 3)

Putting the milk bottles out

Milk was delivered to houses in New Zealand cities and towns until the mid-1990s, when it gradually stopped. Putting the milk bottles out – in the specially designed holder that most families would have owned – was often one of a child’s household duties. Glass milk bottles were replaced by cartons from the late 1980s.
