Someone told me its called a growler and was used to take home beer from a bar, but I don't know if that's accurate.

I suspect it is a vintage milk jug if you picture search on Google "vintage aluminum milk jug" you'll get a lot of similar hits. Every growler I've seen has been glass although I'm no expert.
Does anyone know what this vintage aluminum container was called and used for?
Personally, I believe it to be an old milk jug!
Having milked cows back in the days gone by, I am sure this is a milk jug.
