About this object

These jugs were made in Gore by Richard Gardner Speirs in the 1960s. The largest of the two jugs can hold two gallons of liquid. The jugs would have had a vast range of uses as a vessel for milk, oil, and water. This versatility means that the jugs could have been used inside and outside the house and in business operations including farming or garages.
