This Massive, Minifigure scale Lego moc is based on the Country Club Soda Co bottling plant. Founded in 1899, in the city of Springfield, Massachusetts, Country Club was a very prominent bottling company, having been sold in 16 different states during the 1930s. Eventually, Country Club was bought by 7up in 1985 and closed permanently in 1987. The model I built here is the 2nd bottling plant constructed. It was built in 1921 at 38-48 Emery Street, it replaced the original plant at the exact location. A new plant was built in 1969 at 180 Avocado Street and this plant was demolished to make room for the Springfield Expressway. Today, two buildings belonging to the Freedom Credit Union stand where the bottling plant once stood.

I've only built the first and second floor of the building so far, as it's a very time-consuming process, and I'm pushing my computer to its limits. I will continue to work on more floors when I have time, and I will repost the build when I make another floor. Thank you for your understanding.

Pictures of the bottling plant can be found at the Springfield Preservation Trust. Go to their site, (springfieldpreservation.org) and under resources will be the "WPA Image Project" which contains photos of Springfield that date from 1938-1939. The photos are listed alphabetically by street name, so you can easily find Emery St.
