Got Milk?

Have you ever seen a 13,000 pound milk bottle??  Now you have.

This milk bottle is a Montreal landmark and one that fell to disrepair until 2009 when $100,000 in private donations helped restore the art deco water tower.

The water tower was a way for the Guaranteed Pure Milk Company to advertise their product and was designed for them back in 1930.  The steel structure was built by the Dominion Bridge Company.

It is nice to see it this way, rather in the state of disrepair it was in 5 years ago.
