To my memory, these platforms for milk "container" collection are still in
active daily use at least in some parts northern Italy, and,  I think,
other parts of the Alps. So it is important not to make the tag "historic"
only. In some parts of Germany there used to be one-per-village small
buildings where the farmers would deposit their milk cans.I don't if any of
these are still active, but I imagine that same are still present as small
buildings.
