In our case, there was a compartment in the outside wall of the kitchen that had an outside door and an inside door and that’s where the milk was delivered.

In older houses, especially Chicago & eastward, there were coal and ice shutes as well. In CA, having even a basement or useful attic is rare, blast it!
