    Question 3 Store Milk Bottles

    I have come acquired several of these 3 Store Bottles, both quart and pint, and am interested in exactly how they were used. Thanks for any help anyone could share.

    I imagine these ones were used in grocery stores, rather than for home delivery, and had a 3 cent deposit. They seemed to often use a generic design, not sure why they did that.

    Are they embossed or screened

    All of the ones I've pictured were collected in central Florida, that being said they could have originated just about anywhere as these were used all over the place.
