Through the years
The Hood Milk Bottle
The Hood Bottle was born in 1933, when Arthur Gagnon built it as an ice cream stand along Route 44 in Taunton. He then sold the bottle to the Sankey family (you can still faintly see "Sankey" painted on the bottle in the picture), who operated the stand until 1967. The bottle then fell into disrepair.
