Wordless Wednesday: The Hood Milk Bottle in Boston

 

 

I was in Boston back in November for the CRS/NAR meetings...and a wonderful ActiveRain Meetup. I took a walk to the convention center from my hotel on the water and walked by the iconic Hood Milk Bottle - an ice cream stand and snack bar - by the Boston Children's Museum where it had stood for 30 years.

 

Our kids also loved seeing this when we went to the museum (which is well worth a visit, by the way) and it was fun to see an old friend again, even on a dreary rainy day.

Jeff,

Love this, and was not aware of this Hood Milk bottle.  I am loving the stormy rainy day, we are experiencing here...let it rain!  A

Hood milk has been around in Boston for decades. But this 40-foot icon is something else.

And I am loving the rain here, too. We are expecting 2 days of it - it just started raining here a few hours ago.

Thanks for sharing! In my last career, I used to go to Boston fairly regularly for meetings but don't remember ever seeing the milk bottle. I guess I didn't get out much!

Hi Jeff, for some reason I never knew about this place despite frequent business trips to Boston and a stint living in Cambridge while at the Harvard B School.

We have a small famous structure in Oklahoma City called The Milk Bottle. It no longer serves milk but the orginal look has been kept.

Good afternoon Jeff - that is actually not the only place where there was a hood milk bottle.  There was and might still be one in Philadelphia.

Debe Maxwell, CRS It’s a small world when you can be near the same giant milk bottle in the same milk universe lol.
