The village woman with goats on her way to fill up water from a nearby well with a typical Maltese village landscape in the background.
Goatherds roaming about the village streets was a common site to see not only in the villages but also in other places like Valletta. Goats were an important aspect of the local lifestyle. Many Maltese depended on goat's milk as part of their daily nutrition.
Foreigners visiting Malta were amused by the idea of herdsmen selling fresh milk directly from the goat. The images of young local boys milking goats or milkmen with their flock out in the village streets selling fresh milk door to door, were widely used in Malta postcards during the early 20th century.
