Hey, everybody! This is my first post, but I've browsed through the site every now and then for a year or so. I noticed a lack of bottles from Reading, Pa., so I have decided to post some that my dad, my brother, and I have found over the years. First up is a P and R Bottling Works, A. Werner Prop. Hutchinson.

Here is an A. W. Fisher, West End Bottling Works. Sorry about the quality of the picture. The embossing isn't the greatest to begin with.

This next one is a Keystone Bottling Works Hutch. It has a bit of rot on it, so its a little hard to see.

Those are some beautiful bottles! Nice finds! I hope to have a semi-complete collection of bottles from one area someday too.

Thanks. I hope to find alot more from Reading, too, but its getting harder and harder to find spots to dig. I'm only 19, though, so I should have plenty of time to look for them.

Nice hutches, I love local sodas and beers. The paneled, monogrammed and picture-embossed hutches are sweet. We only had two bottlers around here who used hutches, so the selection is pretty limited. ~Jim

Thanks, Jim. Reading had a decent amount of bottlers back in the day, and some of them had some pretty neat bottles. Hopefully I'll have some more to show by the end of the year.

Thats a killer hutch. Don't see too many with the mug base pattern on the shoulder. Very cool.

Yeah. That's one of my favorites as well. Of course, I think all Hutches are cool, but that one definitely is pretty neat.

Thanks, Jim. I love collecting local bottles as well. There's just something neat about finding bottles from your hometown.

That's awesome. My collection isn't quite that extensive, but then again, I haven't been digging all that long. Hopefully this year will be good to me and I'll find some more different ones.
