Ngā Taonga Sound Archives - The Days of the Milkman

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:33 pm on 15 May 2019

The days of having milk delivered in clinking glass bottles to your door are making a comeback, at least in the lower North Island and Nelson, where several companies have started offering weekly home milk delivery services, in reusable glass bottles. In today’s visit to the sound archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision, Sarah Johnston takes us back to the heyday of the milkie.

And you can listen to the full 1996 Spectrum doco on the old Wellington milkman online here
