World's Largest Catsup Bottle, 800 South Morrison Avenue, Collinsville, Illinois
Unfortunately there is no ketchup in the catsup bottle, instead the structure serves as a water tower for Collinsville, Illinois — original home of the W.E. Caldwell Company for the G.S. Suppiger who bottled Brooks catsup. Completed in 1949 the giant bottle was erected as a way to supply water for plant operations and sprinkler system. Today’s it’s a shining red condiment in the sky that brings locals together, stops travelers in their tracks…and may be the only bottle of ketchup big enough to satisfy my cravings.
