Imagine a time when the customer ruled and deliveries were commonplace. Fresh dairy and bakery goods, starched and pressed laundry, and boxes of groceries were brought right to your doorstep. Delivery trucks hit the road with the invention of the motorcar. Many were simply modified cars until demand called for light-duty trucks to meet the needs of communities across the country for both residential and commercial services. Just blocks from the museum, at 627 Mill Street, a french laundry offered delivery service in a 1912 Ford Model T featured in this exhibit, along with other historical “Special Deliveries.”
