City of Montreal, Quebec

Guarantee Milk Bottle

Bottle - André Rochon
Built By: Dominion Bridge of Canada

When Built: 1930
Erected on the Guaranteed Pure Milk Co. Building in 1932.

Dimensions:
Height: 32 Feet (9.8 Metres)
Diameter: 16 Feet (4.9 Metres)
Weight: 6 tons

Construction Materials:
Steel Plate

Location:
The Dairy was located on Aquaduc Street and later renamed to Lucien L'Allier.

Although not a community monument as such, it is big. Eventually, I will create a section on Commercial Monuments but for now, it is here. Besides, its a large dairy product.

Reason for Building:

It was used as a water tower for the Dairy.

Additional Information:

Apparently the old buildings on which it is erected are slated for demolition soon and it will be moved somewhere else (might have already happened).

Montreal also has a giant Orange
Orange
