During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Cuyahoga Valley families purchased goods through a large home-shopping network that brought dairy products, bread, fruits, vegetables, ice, coal, oil, and tea directly to their farmstead. From carts drawn by horses or cattle, delivery men sold most food items that a family needed to survive. The milk delivery business was especially competitive around the Cuyahoga Valley. In the morning, the milkman left a quart-sized bottle of milk, cottage cheese, and other requested dairy products outside the home's side door. To order more milk, the family left a note for the milkman outside in the empty bottles.
