Eau Gallie / Melbourne, Florida, USA
International Postcard Week
6-12 October 2019
This postcard highlights a tacky eyesore "Big Orange" built in 1966 by Adger Smith, a lifelong resident of Eau Gallie. It was used as a welcome station by the chamber of commerce to dispense orange juice to tourists. Big Orange has managed to escape all attempts to demolish the gaudy eyesore. In fact it is so ugly it has become an icon to the sophisticated Melbourne (formerly the city of Eau Gallie) residents.
