This undated photograph shows an unnamed lady who is only identified as “The Huntington Milk Woman.” She is said to have lived on the west side of the town of Huntington, somewhere in the early 1900s. This woman milked her cows, hitched up her horse and wagon and then went to the local coal mines. There, she would sell milk to the miners, using a large tin cup.
