Milk & Bread Van – Etched Brass Kit (N)
‘Making-A-Scene Etched’ kits are created from finely etched brass components that have been designed for ease of assembly which is assisted by full-color illustrated instructions (see sample page). Assembly usually takes less than an hour and no soldering or special tools are required… just snip, fold and glue ! This type of van or wagon was used to deliver milk and bread to households throughout the United States up until the wide spread use of motorized vehicles in the first half of the 1900’s (see photo). They were typically pulled by a single horse and often featured the name or logo of the dairy or bakery that owned them. When used to carry dairy products, this van would typically have an insulated cabinet in the rear which was chilled by ice blocks.
