Big Orange from Melbourne Florida (International Postcard Week)

Hello!  from the Big Orange!
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.

Love, Harmony
