EDITORS COMMENTS
In this charming photograph from the 1970s, a milk order tag is seen hanging around the neck of an empty milk bottle with the playful message "2 Extra Please." The tag, which would have been left on the doorstep for the milkman to collect and replace with a freshly filled bottle, is a delightful example of the wordplay and humor that was common in everyday life during that era. The use of the phrase "2 Extra Please" is both a request for an additional pint of milk and a pun on the phrase "I'm not getting enough," which adds an element of wit and humor to the scene. The red and white color scheme of the tag, reminiscent of the traditional milkman's uniform and the classic design of milk bottles, further enhances the nostalgic feel of the image. The milkman, a symbol of a bygone era, was an essential part of many communities in the UK during the 1970s and earlier. He would deliver fresh milk, often still warm from the farm, directly to people's homes, making early morning deliveries before the hustle and bustle of the day began. This photo captures a small but significant moment in the daily routine of milk delivery, showcasing the simple pleasures and quirks of life in the 1970s. Overall, this photograph is a delightful snapshot of a time gone by, filled with charm, humor, and a sense of nostalgia. It's a reminder of the importance of finding joy in the little things and the enduring power of wordplay and puns to bring a smile to our faces.
