Got FRESH Milk?
Photo circa 1926-1929. Pictured: Sam and Norman Carruth, "Milk Men." These two delivered fresh milk to customers in Lincoln and Pike counties, along rutted roads, starting at 4 a.m. every day. Sam, my father, was the eldest, born in 1915. He is on the left. He started driving the milk route when he was 11.
Photo Credit: Their mother, my grandmother, Mary Estelle Carruth, who used her Brownie camera quite often to record life on the dairy farm in Johnston's Station, and thereby instilled a love of and fascination with photography through at least three generations and counting.
