    I would guess your New York beer label on the milk glass bottle is legit . Here in Cleveland, Ohio, Black Label Beer used the milk glass bottles for a short time. They turn up every once in awhile. I have one but I'm at work right now, so I pulled this photo off the web....

    Bottling on Oleatha Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri

    Nice! You left us hanging at the end with Squirt-Dr. Pepper Co. moving to the new Fyler Ave. location in 1965. Any idea what happened after that? Google says the building on Fyler today is now Handi-Craft Co., makers of Dr. Brown's baby bottles and accessories.

    Zetz fountain bottle

    I would think late 30's, 40's due to the acl label.

    It is listed in the Ohio Bottle Book (2007) under the "Mineral Waters" section, and gives a value of $15-20. The book's prices sometimes can be way off the mark.

    That red and white Crown bottle looks like a Dr. Wells copycat.

    Strap Sided Flask

    I don't believe the label is a repro. Label is not original to the bottle, but not a repro. Bottle was probably reused.

    Can you clean and Preserve Wooden Pop Crates?

    Never coat! I just hose them off (the filthy ones) and gently wipe off the dirt the hose didn't remove and it's never affected the paint. It also brings out the animal urine smell if any of them are tainted, and I throw them out. Nice pics, JKL.

    Bleach safe for ACL bottles?

    I wouldn't do it. I found some ACL milk bottles in an abandoned house attic. I put them in a tub of water with bleach added to sterilize and soak the disgusting urine/crap that was inside the bottles due to mice/rats using them for homes over the years. The ACL's disappeared. It really...

    Coke bottle

    I'll guess that it may be as old as from the year 1862, or possibly newer, maybe from the year 2024? Not sure, there is no photo.
