There are still some dairies who deliver milk to your doorstep here in southwestern Pennsylvania. My grandmother had her milk delivered in glass bottles with paper cover on top. A thick layer of cream was at the top - this was for coffee and tea, English style. Sometimes, she would shake the bottle and include the cream. You might guess this to be a wonderful memory of mine. But, truth be told, I hated milk - and only used it to wet my cereal!
Tickets or cards like these slid into a ticket holder on the milk box - made of tin or some other silvery metal. They indicated to the milkman how many quarts you might want.
We came across these vintage tickets some time ago, but weren't sure what happened to them. They resurfaced just recently.
Each 2-3/8 inch by 1-3/16 inch card or ticket indicates a number of quarts: 25, 1, 9, 12, etc. Each one indicates the number of quarts and then lists the milkman's name:
Several cards or tickets are pictured to show variety. We don't have a lot of any one ticket, so please let us choose one for you.
