A man and a boy deliver milk by sleigh. "Old-time pung, used by milkman in delivering milk, about 1890-1900. Also characteristic are the milk cans then used to convey milk in bulk rather than in small bottles or containers, as now. Another mark of old times is the black buffalo robe thrown over the back of the seat. Gift of Mrs. Grace Dudley."
