The Californian, Vol. 2 : Illustrated Magazine; June to November, 1892 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Californian, Vol. 2: Illustrated Magazine; June to November, 1892 We meet women coming in to the town market riding on small donkeys which are so ladm with vegetables bulging out on either side that it is rather diﬂicult to pass and we must crowd into a doorway. The 141t or women who sell milk excite our curiosity. They sit by the roadside and knit while they deal out in small portions rather blue-looking milk to any who are fortunate enough to be able to aﬂ'ord it for milk is an expen sive beverage here, where cows are kept in the stables from one year's end to the other, brought up and fed by hand, as it were. Wine is much cheaper than milk, and many a little one in these parts is fed upon diluted wine (from its infancy) instead of wholesome nourishing milk.
