Narrative by Junebug Clark: Water Delivery to Florida Hurricane Disaster Victims (Re-creation) Highland Park, Michigan Photo: Joe Clark HBSS 1955 This photo is significant because in the early 50s milk was only being distributed in glass bottles. Pure-Pak was manufacturing “New" paper carton containers, but people were reluctant to buy milk in anything but a glass bottle. There are a series of photos in the Clark Family Photography Collection used in ads to promote the benefits of the paper carton over the glass bottle, but nothing really changed the people's opinion until… …a hurricane hit Florida and Excello, the parent company of Pure-Pak, sent truck loads of emergency drinking water in Pure-Pak paper cartons and people finally got it. Why send glass bottles to an area already covered in broken glass? These darn things work. Since there were no photos of the unanticipated and successful distribution of paper cartons of Drinking Water, this photo is a recreation of the event. My mother, Bernice (back row second from right) was tasked early one morning, to call neighbors and friends to come to the parking of our studio, “Immediately, dressed just as you are to our studio parking lot) Soon afterwards, the cardboard “Milk Carton” as opposed to the glass “Milk Bottle”, made it into everyday life and into your refrigerator today.
