Milk to be Sold in Paper Bottles (Aug, 1934)

A Machine just recently developed not only sterilizes, fills, and caps milk bottles, but actually makes the bottles. Everything is automatic and the filled milk bottle can be turned out at a cost of less than one cent.

A paper container used for the milk as many novel features. Sturdy construction permits it to be handled just as roughly as the glass bottles, without danger of leakage.

A special clip which seals the bottle is easily replaced if contentents are not used at once. Even if the milk bottle freezes the bottle remains sealed.

[…] A esto se dedica el weblog Modern mechanix: partiendo de documentos sacados de revistas tecnológicas de los años 30 en adelante, nos demuestra lo absurdo de algunos inventos que trataban de hacernos la vida más fácil. Entre sus archivos encontraremos por ejemplo: Calzoncillos hinchables masajeadores, (hummm, esto lo he visto en la teletienda hace poco), cortinas metalizadas anti bombas atómicas, camuflages militares que engañarían al más avispado enemigo, cascos con pelo para no afear el look de las motoristas, elegantes trajes espaciales, robots de cocina a lo grande, o inventos increibles como leche embotellada en cajas de papel.

    And later it was discovered that paper bottles could be square instead of round, and so they could be packed more efficiently into normal boxes. And so that – rather than an anti-Semitic reaction to the six-pointed star on the prototype – is probably why they don’t look like that today.
