a day of deliveries

I happened to be out when these three trucks were heading in to town to deliver some more windmill sections.  These sections were not as long as the previous ones so there was no problems or delays.  I saw a Garda vehicle drive up ahead to monitor the situation.  After taking a few photos we headed down toward the water.  I noticed that some people still get their milk delivered.  I remember when I was growing up, we had a milkman deliver our milk but it was in a glass bottle and it was placed inside by our door.  Here, in most cases there isn't an inside door.  The mornings are cool so I guess the milk is ok to be outside for a bit.  If you can't place the milk by a door, I guess the window is the next best option.

  1. I have seen truck loads of windmill parts going down the road, but in rural areas, not in town! When I was a boy the milk man left glass bottles in a box that was built into the house near the side door.

  4. Those windmill sections are huge! I remember milk being delivered to our home, also...but that was a long, long time ago. And glass bottles were used!

  5. This is a perfect post. Modern days plus memories of days gone by, as well as how modern times modify what goes on. I love it!

  6. My dad spent a year or two as a milkman before moving onto other jobs. It's interesting to see the police car, rather a different look from our local and federal police cruisers.

  9. Quando eu era criança, o leite era entregue na porta de casa e em garrafa de vidro. Nós tínhamos que devolver a garrafa de vidro, acontecia uma troca com o leiteiro.
    Fotos belas, como sempre.
