Notice to Milkmen

Notice to Milkmen

The Notice to Milkmen placard was issued by the Connecticut State Department of Health to alert milkmen that a case of communicable disease was in a home. It  gave instructions on leaving milk and water delivered to the home in accordance with Regulation 26 of the Sanitary Code. The placard was dated and signed by the health officer.

There is no date on the placard, but from the diseases listed, it was probably used prior to 1950.
