Two cases of nostalgia


Bequeathed by an elderly friend clearing out her Parramatta house: a handmade, monogrammed wooden sewing case (c. 1925) and commercial cowhide case (c. 1940), with two glass 600 ml milk bottles (1970s) and an Imperial half pint cream bottle (1960s). For scale, they stand next to my plastic replica of a 1960s Dairy Farmers' school milk 1/3 pint bottle (from the 2007 Sydney Royal Easter Show).
