  • MILK CANS: A CELEBRATION OF THEIR HISTORY, USE, AND DESIGN

    Milk cans, milk churns, or milk pails have been used for centuries which is why they are some of the most photographed of all farmyard objects.

This entire book is dedicated to the celebration of milk cans and their history, use, and design.
