The Guaranteed Pure Milk Bottle water tower is an Art Deco structure built in 1930 as advertising for the Guaranteed Pure Milk Company. It weighs 6 tons (13,000 pounds) and is 10 meters high (33 feet). It has a capacity of 250,000 litres (66,000 gallons). Designed by architects Hutchison,Wood and Miller and was constructed by the Dominion Bridge Company.
It had deteriorated over the years and in 2009 Heritage Montreal launched a campaign to restore and save it.

Below Google map shows location of the Guaranteed Pure Milk water tower. Official address is 1025 Lucien L'Allier Street (previously rue de l'Aqueduc). But the best viewing point is at the corner of Rue De la Montagne and Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montreal, essentially right where the Bell Centre is and look up behind the gas station.
