And the rubber disk on metal handle to stop the milk from pouring when
the bottle was tilted. I remember turning the ICE sign as it hung in
the window to let the ice man know how much ice you wanted carried
into the house.

When I was a kid, the county rebuilt the bridge by our house.
That bridge had a concrete abutment on either side of the creek
with two I-beams set in the concrete and a wooden (see, on-topic)
deck built on that. After the deck was removed, all that was
left spanning the creek were the I-beams.
Our milkman parked at the "Bridge Out" barricade and walked
accross on the I-beams to deliver the milk.
Nope. Used to buy whipping cream and you had to get it out of the container
with a spoon. No where near that today. I still use my grandmothers ice
cream recipe. To get it to come out right, I have to cut the amount of milk
in half and double the amount of cream called for. We have a dairy right
down the road. They deliver. They claim their products are the way they used
to be. Ya, like the used to be last year. Might as well by it in the store.
Gee, since we;re already way off-topic, what's your grandmother's ice cream
recipe? One of my best memories of childhood is sitting on the back stoop
at my great-grandparent's house hand cranking on the ice cream churn. Only
the kids that took a turn on the crank got a bowl!
