The Tulsa Historical Society took to Facebook Friday, hoping to solve a mystery in some photos from the late 1950s.

The group said it's working on an exhibit about the 1950s and spotted something odd in one of its photos. It posted three separate images from the photo showing a giant bottle at the corner of 21st & Yale.

The photo was taken in 1959 looking east down 21st Street. It shows a giant bottle on the southwest corner of 21st Street and Yale, across the street from the Tulsa County Fairgrounds.

The group posted two images, each zoomed in a little closer, showing the bottle, which appears to be at least 50 feet tall.
