Milk Bottles from Auburn Dairies

       Donated with a collection of ephemera by Colleen Webber Nicholas, these milk bottles are from Auburn, CA Dairies. The items were owned by her mother, Marguerite E. Correa Webber of Newcastle, who was born in Newcastle and resided there for 79 years. Her grandfather was a pioneer orchardist in Newcastle.

The first bottle is from the Valley Sanitary Dairy.


 Below is an ad for the Valley Sanitary Dairy which includes a rare two-digit phone number.

 Below are two photos of a bottle from the Thomas Dairy, which has a rare three-digit phone number.

The back side of the bottle has some great copy about how modern and wise it is to buy milk in glass bottles.
