Giant Solo Paper Cup, 1100 N. Glenstone Ave., Springfield, Missouri
A giant Solo paper cup (perhaps even the world’s largest cup) stood as the entrance to the Solo Cup company offices in Springfield, Missouri. A Lily-Tulip factory opened at the location in 1952, followed by Sweetheart, followed by Solo. While the name has changed over the years the cup has remained an iconic landmark in Springfield.
I hope you were able to take a few photos (and a big gulp) while you could: Solo Cup Co. recently closed this plant. The building was bought out and, in 2015, the giant solo paper cup was demolished.
