From an early 1950s photo of Latrobe, PA main street.

Yes, and I can remember having milk in glass bottles delivered to our house several times a week, probably during the 40's, 50's, and 60's.

As I recall, we also had cream, eggs, butter, and cottage cheese delivered to our house, too.

On Bainbridge Island in Puget Sound my aunt and uncle would have milk delivered. Cats would love to lick the cream when it was cold enough to push the cream out the paper caps on the top. They also had ice delivered for the ice box. A real ice box.

As far as the trolley cars went, too bad we allowed GM, Firestone, and Goodyear buy up all the track, companies, and right of way only to eliminate the electric cars so they could make buses with tires to replace them.

Me too, when I was growing up. This was our house. If you look closely you'll see a metal box on the porch for the milk delivery.

I remember the milkman delivering bottles of milk every morning when I visited my grandparents. But the milkman had a horse-pulled milk wagon, and the horse had the entire route memorized. While the milkman was taking the milk to a customer’s porch, horse would slowly start moving forward to stop in front of the next customer’s house. The only problem was that once in a while the milkman had to pick up more empties than he could muster at one time... They lived in the inner city, but I remember the milk delivery as being very neighborly.

We got our milk delivered in bottles from Cloverland Dairy in Baltimore. On freezing days the cream would rise and push out the top of the bottle.
