Would you relish having a towering ketchup bottle? That emblem of roadside Americana could be yours if you fork over enough money.
A "For Sale" sign is in front of what's billed as the "World's Largest Bottle of Catsup." It once served as a water tower in the city of Collinsville.
The asking price for the 65-year-old, 170-foot-tall landmark is $200,000. The warehouse it once served is listed at $300,000.
The landmark replicates a bottle of Brooks Old Original Rich and Tangy Catsup, which was produced in the buildings beneath the tower. The 100,000-gallon tower held water — never ketchup — and it hasn't been used since Brooks moved out in the early 1960s.
The plant later became a warehouse.
