Bid on a rare find of Washington DC history - a milk box from the Thompson's Honor Dairy. This box came from a DC estate and was used as storage of fresh milk every delivery day. Imprint inside the box reads "The man who made this box never saw it." I don't know why I like that! This item is in good condition - the dents and signs of use give it character, while the overall condition and structure of the box is in solid, sturdy shape. Please give it a good home!
