Dorchester Gas Tank Mug


I've known some mugs from Dorchester but this is ridiculous.

A person once asked me "what is this marshmallow character?" That person, obviously, was not from Boston.

This marshmallow is my version of the gigantic, 140-foot tall natural gas storage tank in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston. Highly visible from Interstate 93, it is a beloved local landmark thanks to Sister Corita Kent's bold streaks of color that cover the tank, commonly referred to as The Rainbow Swash.

As a kid we'd drive past and I'd wave at it, now it is waving back.

11 oz. ceramic mug, dishwasher and microwave safe.

Free shipping.
