A milkman delivers milk to a woman at her home in 1950s Australia

A man delivers milk to a woman at the front of her home. The man wears boots and overalls, and stands on the front steps of the home. On one step is a metal tray with eighteen full milk bottles in it. The woman stands on the top step, wearing a dress, an apron and open-toed sandals. She holds a milk bottle in her right hand, and is accepting another bottle with her left hand. Behind her is the verandah of her home. On it is a large potted plant and a wooden park-style bench seat. The front wall of her home is made up of small and large bricks.
