    Old well?

    Thanks! I think those are the same photos i have looked at on the counties GIS map. I don't think i see any buildings, but some of the photos are pretty rough. So rough that i have a hard time seeing the wells that i know are there. Oddly enough though, a little airplane is in one of the old photos.

    Old well?

    I'm guessing this is probably true. In the 5 years we've owned the land, it has always been full of water so we may never see the bottom! Lol. Still a neat little feature. Maybe that grate is simply for water overflow.

    Old well?

    Cool picture! I was leaning more towards well rather than outhouse. It's just that metal grate that was throwing me since the other well doesn't have one. Makes me wonder what its function is.

    Need help with this bottle!

    Thanks for the Owens Illinois tip. I was able to look up the code and get the year. I still have not been able to find another picture posted anywhere that looks like this bottle. I thought that was weird given the unusual shape.

    Need help with this bottle!

    I would agree that it was for hair tonic after researching what the company did and it has a small hole in the opening. I was wondering if it was rare bc in my google searches if this company, i saw lots of bottles but none this shape. Was wondering if anyone else has come across this bottle and...

    I need help identifying this bottle by the F.W. Fitch Co. I would like to know the year and found many bottles but none that looked like this. Is anyone familiar with this particular bottle?
