International Harvester Metro Van

I spotted this cool vehicle from the past in front of the Conrad. It's a Metro Van, also called a step van or multi-delivery vehicle. As a child, I remember a yellow metro van coming to our house on a regular basis.  It was driven by the milkman, who carried two glass bottles of cold milk and placed them in a metal bottle carrier on the porch. There was a picture of a cow painted on the side of the van.

The Metro Vans were built in the U.S. from 1938 - 1975. Many of them were built so that the driver could stand or sit.

Our milk truck delivery van looked similar to this. I dressed similar to that boy, too. Ha ha.
