Milk Now Delivered in Handy Paper Bottles (May, 1929)

Milk Now Delivered in Handy Paper Bottles

A SPEEDY motorcycle,it is said, can haul as much milk in new paper containers, recently introduced by a New York dairy concern, as a wagon can deliver in glass bottles.

The cone-shaped containers can be packed upright and inverted so that two quarts occupy little more space than a one-quart bottle. Moreover, two quarts in paper containers are said to weigh only seven ounces more than one quart in a bottle.

Before filling, the containers are paraffined to make them leak-proof and air-tight. After filling, the top is sealed with a metal clip. To open the new paper bottles, the top is cut off below this clip.

    Yashpal – this is an article from 1929, about what we’d call a milk carton today.
