This milk truck and barn are on a farm about five miles east of where I live.(8k) I post a barn picture each week to support Tricia's Barn Charm where you can see many more old barns.

@Céline: Wiccan symbols usually have a circle around the star. I think this is lighted at Christmas time.

Thank you for making me read up on the Carnation Company. 'Evaporated milk' was part of my childhood !

That truck looks great next to the barn. Complementary colors and an air of nostalgia.

Don, this photo has a special impact for me. My parents met back in the early 40's while they both were working for Carnation Milk at a local bottling plant -- Mom in the office and Dad drove a milk tanker truck.

I like the barn picture. Somehow to me the milk truck seems to be out of place. I do remember years ago we had milk delivered to our house and it was bottled milk.

A nice barn sheltered by those trees; the roof looks new. I wonder what the wooden star is for ?

That old iconic 'Carnation' van is a blast from the past, evaporated milk, nice in coffee.
