“Standing 40 feet tall, this giant milk bottle sits next to the Boston Children’s Museum, just across the Fort Point Channel. In 1930, Hood Dairy built the structure entirely of wood, and it was moved to its current spot in 1977. The bottle is home to an ice cream stand. It’s would take an estimated 50,000 gallons of dairy product to fill the monster milk bottle.” [boston.com]
