For a lark we went out during February vacation and began the first of many "sighting" days. We packed a picnic and viewed 19 roadside attractions near our home, including this big milk bottle. Erected by Frates Dairy, similar to the one in New Bedford. They were designed by Les Labrose and were painted white with a cream color close to the brim.

Another big milk bottle restaurant

This restaurant has been there since I was a kid (a long time). Still in operation, it was known as the MILK bottle. Painted white with a big red cap on top -- the upper floors were used for office and storage
