Milk Can

 

The 10-gallon milk can was a standard container for storing, cooling, and transporting milk.  The large mushroom shaped lid was removed and the milk strainer inserted into the can for straining and filling.  The early milk cans were made of steel and galvanized for rust-protection.  Later cans were made of stainless steel.
