Orange (Orange Julep)
When Built: 1942
This big orange has been a drive-up fast food outlet since 1942 and is currently operated under the name of "Orange Julep". Orange Julep is a traditional orange drink invented in Montreal more than 60 years ago. Food is brought by girls on roller blades to people's cars.
When it was built, the juice counter was owned and operated by a man named Gibeau who had invented an orange drink and called it orange Gibeault or Gibeau. Gibeau took pleasure in taking customers or friends to the third floor of his big orange and with theatrical gestures and conversation threw buckets of oranges in a hopper crusher.
Montreal also features a giant Milk Bottle:
