British milk bottles were first delivered in 1880; four times a day, by horse-drawn carts.

Doorstep delivery is becoming increasingly popular, especially for busy families.

Buying your milk this way ensures a constant supply of fresh milk, helping eliminate breakfast tears and tantrums.

Before milk bottles, milkmen directly filled the jugs of customers.

The National Association of Milk Bottle Collectors provides research and information about milk bottles.

Advertisements began to appear on milk bottles in the 1920 and used sand-blasting techniques to etch them on the glass.
