A Nash Metropolitan hauling a pop-up trailer trundles past the Garland Avenue Benewah Creamery Milk Bottle in Spokane, Washington.
Pop-up trailers are a lightweight and compact alternative to regular trailers. Fiberglass and canvas, however, do not provide sufficient protection from ravenous bears.
Two Benewah milk bottle stores were built in Spokane in the mid 1930s. Benewah Creamery had the milk contract at Westview Elementary School when I transferred in the mid sixties. A half-pint glass bottle with crimped paper lid cost 3 cents. (This was back when keyboards had cents signs but no exclamation points on them and no one had even heard of a tilde!)
This ad from a North Central High School year book shows the bottle in the early 1970s. I have vague and potentially false memories of a neon Indian chief on the Garland Avenue building. Vague and false memories are par for the course in this project.
