A dairy farmer shifts milk in urns from his dairy to a pick-up point near Bowral, New South Wales, 1968

A dairy farmer unloads milk urns from a covered trailer, onto a concrete platform. The trailer is attached to an old style utility car, the back of which is visible at the left of the image. The farmer wears a hat, shirt, 'bib and brace' overalls and boots. At the far left of the image is another man, who is handling another milk urn. All of the urns are about mid-thigh height and made of metal. In the background is a dirt road and bushland.
