It was built in 1930 and designed by by architects Hutchison, Wood & Miller as advertising for the Guaranteed Pure Milk Company. It is located on Lucien L'allier st. Here are her specs: 6 tons,10 meters (33ft), and is a water tower (I didn't know that!)
It was built by Dominion Bridge Company with riveted steel; it has a capacity of 250,00 liters (66,000 US gal).
After years of neglect and graffitis, it looked horrible! Just like in the top picture. All sad and rusted.
Thanks to the efforts of Heritage Montreal, volunteers and private donors it was restored to its former glory in 2009.
Tis is an actual picture I took in June this year. I couldn't take it facing me because I didn't have acces to the site. I'm glad it's back!
LONG LIVE THE MILK BOTTLE!
P.S: I took my info from Wikipedia :)
