Pictured below are three old milk-bottle caps. They're all of a smaller size — about 1½ inches wide. Now, I'm too wee young of a lad to remember milk bottles. So I'd love to hear people's memories on the topic.
- What are your memories of the milkman's daily deliveries?
- What were your favorite things to get other than milk?
- Were you or someone in your family's history a milkman?
- Are you a collector of milk bottles or milk-bottle caps?

This first cap is from Day Dairy in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Its slogan was "The Milky Way to Health."
Up next is a generic milk cap that features a message encouraging customers to wash and return their empty bottles each day.
Finally, here's a cap for Good Leschi Milk. Note that the cap states "Thursday." I'm guessing there was a different cap for each day of the week, so that customers could keep track of which milk was the freshest.
