September 7, 2012 – Demolition crews remove the 20 foot milk bottle from the remains of an old Turner Dairy plant on S. Bellevue. The iconic bottle was built in the 40s and is the largest of 22 still in existence. The bottle was acquired by the Children’s Museum of Memphis for use in either an upcoming exhibit at the museum or as part of traveling exhibit on dairy. The five ton bottle was originally installed by the Reed family of Reed Bros. Dairies before the plant was acquired by Turner. (Kyle Kurlick/Special to The Commercial Appeal)
