Jo is such a champ at finding great roadside wonders! This is the giant Vess Lemon-Lime bottle in St. Louis, Missouri.
This post-industrial area of St. Louis, where the bottle proudly reigns, is in the midst of a slow but steady re-birth as an urban housing/shopping/entertainment district.
Once called “The Kerry Patch” when it was home to a large Irish immigrant population; the area was home to stockyards and a large number of bottling companies at the beginning of the 20th Century. Among those was the “Vess Bottling Company” who erected this way-too-cool giant Vess Lemon-Lime bottle.
