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.

Mukava maaseudun tunnelma. Vaikka kuva on mustavalkoinen, voin aistia vahvan kesäisen sinisen taivaan ja vihreät puut ja nurmen.
Upeaa työtä, kuten aina. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the explanation. I wouldn't have had any idea what that was. I hope they save some of them for historical reasons.

Interesting - this looks like a toilet outhouse as I did not know the milk platform existed. Interesting pic in black and white. Thanks for the description of pic too as I would not have guessed it much to do with milk.

Aivan upea kuva jälleen :) Ihanan nostalginen kuva, muistuttaa lapsuudesta! Sääli vain, että noita näkeekin nykyään harvemmin, ellei lähde maalle ajelulle.

Kiitos! Joo, on kiva että maitolaitureita on säästetty ja varmaan uusiakin rakennettu ihan vain maalaistunnelmaa luomaan.
