I have always been obsessed with buildings shaped as things. I remember going to the Enchanted Forrest when I was little and loved it. The child-sized amusement park had all sorts of buildings shaped as things like shoes, boats, etc. It's since been abandoned and I'll be posting photos of them on my photography blog (stay tuned). I've also been obsessed with buildings shaped as objects thanks to Sendak's In the Night Kitchen. I loved looking (still do!) at all the cans and other items turned into sky scrapers. And then there was our family drive to Boston and we'd pass by the big milk bottle.
Anyway, I stumbled upon these historic photos and thought I'd post them. Long live buildings shaped as other things!
