Big Cup

The big cup is Lily Tulip; it has never been a Dixie Cup. I have worked there going on 39 years. There is a water tank in back of plant that still has Lily Tulip on the side of it.

Pic taken by Ronda Wynn Jett of the Sweetheart cup. There was also a large Lily Tulip cup -- perhaps 25 feet tall -- in front of its old manufacturing operation along Hwy 35 in Holmdel, NJ until the 1970s.
