Location #8

This location is just one tenth of a mile north of the north gate to the Avila ranch. There are two items at this location. One is a short stretch of the old cement highway. The other is a pile of broken pieces of cement which I was told is what's left of a giant cement milk bottle that was used as an advertisement for a local dairy at one time, and placed to be visible from the freeway. I'd really love to have a photo or this thing, but so far I haven't found one.

View facing south showing the old cement road just east of the freeway.

Same location as above photo looking north.
The remains of a giant cement milk bottle.
Close-up showing rebar lattice. This was clearly something different.
View looking south from just north of the pile.
Another part of the old milk bottle. I wonder how many gallons it held.
