Paeroa: L&P bottle, 1968

A giant 6-metre-high Lemon & Paeroa bottle appeared in Christmas 1968, in part answer to the previous year’s ‘Paeroa rocket’. It was built from the same materials but painted in L&P colours. It was erected by the Paeroa Businessmen’s Association in association with Innes Tartan, then the owners of the Paeroa mineral water spring, and had a public address office in the bottle neck. It attracted great public interest but had to be dismantled because it was a traffic hazard.
