Maitolaituri by Pajunen Maitolaituri by Pajunen
A milk platform (maitolaituri in Finnish)
Ruovesi, Finland
July 2012

The milk platforms were born when milk processing became industrialised and milk needed to be transported to dairies, sometimes over long distances. The milk platform was a collection point, where the milk lorries would pick up full milk churns and drop off empty ones. In the 1970s, milk tankers and vacuum collection arrived and with them, milk platforms became obsolete and many were dismantled as useless. The milk platform was not just a place for collecting milk, it was also a popular place for dates and meetings.
