:: Monday Murals: Little Cow

Third part of the previous mural. When I was a child, there were trucks like this that stopped at corners selling milk in bulk and were called ‘Little cow’. They honked and people came with their own bottles or jugs to get the amount they needed. I never knew if it came right from the producer or from a plant after processed. The ‘House of Meat’, beside it, also referes to an existing butchery in the neighborhood. I imagine the brown log building is supposed to be the Infant Jesus church, though it has no resemblance to the actual church, except for the statue on top.
Monday Murals are hosted by Oakland Daily Photo. Come to know some other murals examples.

Terceira parte do mural anterior. Quando era criança, havia caminhões como este que paravam nas esquinas para vender leite a granel e eram chamados de ‘Vaquinha’. Eles buzinavam e as pessoas vinham com suas vasilhas para buscar a quantidade de que precisavam. Nunca soube se ele vinha direto do produtor ou de uma usina de beneficiamento. A casa de carnes, ao lado, também refere a um açougue existente na vizinhança. Imagino que a construção de troncos marrom seja a igreja do Menino Jesus, embora não tenha nenhuma semelhaça com a igreja real, exceto pela imagem na cumeeira.
