Milk bottle t-shirt by Hog Island Press for Hidden City

$ 25.00

Limited edition designed and silkscreened by the folks at Hog Island Press in South Philly. 50-50 cotton/poly blend from American Apparel. Harbisons Dairies, founded in 1865, once operated six plants in the Philadelphia area, four of which had water towers in the form of giant milk bottles (read more about it here). Only one of the metal milk bottles remains, and although now covered in rust,  it has become a neighborhood icon of sorts. Hidden City partnered with Mark Adams of Hog Island Press to create this salute to to one of our favorite examples of what architect Joel Spivak calls “commercial archaeology.” First in a series--collect 'em all!
