Water dipper

Water dipper

In households where there was no running water, it was common for everyone to drink directly from the dipper used to dip water from the water bucket. At least some recognized the fact that such a procedure was unsanitary because, by the 1920s, rural grade school students were getting lessons in how to make a throwaway drinking cup from a sheet of tablet paper. (There were, of course, no drinking fountains in rural schools, only a well or cistern and a bucket of water.)
