Two English migrant boys enjoying very fresh milk at a farm school near Molong, New South Wales, 1958

Two boys beside a dairy cow in a dairy. One boy is about sixteen, and sits on a low stool. The other is about ten, and kneels on one knee beside the stool. Both wear shorts, shoes, socks and shirts. The younger boy wears a vest. Beneath the cow is a metal bucket. The older boy holds one of the cow's teats and directs a stream of milk at the younger boy, who has his mouth wide open and his eyes shut. The milk goes into his mouth. Some of it has splashed on his face.
