Title

Monson Family Home

Description

A young woman standing at the back door of Howard and Phyllis Monson's house at 2023 Fifteenth Avenue. The trellis provides some privacy shielding for the back entrance into the home. The metal box attached to the house wall near the back door is possibly for milk delivery. Milk in glass bottles was delivered to homes. Empty bottles were placed in the box and recycled by the delivery man. Many homes in the 1940s did not have refrigerators so daily delivery was an efficient way to provide fresh milk. The growth of supermarkets and the availablity of automobiles ended the milk home delivery.
