    Green wide mouth barrel

    I've got one near similar, it had a gold leaf type label applied to it. It's all but faded away, but if I find it, I'll try to get a photo that will pick it up. No name to be found, but there were laurel like leaves around it if I remember correctly.

    Various Vicks Vaporubs

    Vicks VapoRub was THE most widely used remedy during the Spanish Flu of 1918, both at home and in hospital. It put them on the map, so to speak, and they continue in business today because of it. You can research some interesting info on it's popularity of the time and it's connections to that...

    Anyone else collect this kind of stuff?

    When I got into digging as a kid, we would go to the Ogden dump north of Salt Lake. The dump was so thik with material, we would literally dig into the pit walls and just let it fall into the buckets and then bring back in the truck to go through. I was after bottles, but we would find pottery...

    Dump Truck Finds

    I used to collect the color run on those Owen Casey sodas. They are quite collectible as there are a wide range of shades from deep blue through green, but some cornflower or light aqua ones being the harder to find. Mostly 1860's with some variants. Very early California soda. Most buyers might...

    Help identifying this Root Coca Cola Bottle

    The design looks like underground roots from a tree, perhaps a play on their Root namesake. Interesting pattern.

    Damaged Old Sachem Bitters And Wigwam Tonic Bottle Value

    Yup, you're right. Amber looks right. Amazing how it looks after I came back and looked at it again. Maybe my monitor was toning on me. Or maybe a trip to my ophthalmologist is in order.

    New at this any ideas?

    Interesting. I've found a couple of those in a grab box at an auction. I thought they might have been vinegar or oil table bottles as mine had a small pointed top spout, but same metal corker cap. I'll have to find them and see if there is any embossing on bottom.

    Hey guys started to get the addiction itch for these bottles.

    Looks like it may be an embalming fluid or some type of IV med bottle. That type of top would allow a rubber cap and molded tube to be placed over it and the bottle was tipped upside down to dispense. Are there graduation marks on the side of the bottle?

    I may have found a new dump location that could go back to the very early 1800s!

    I like the old photos where they show the privies. Rural pictures are probably harder to find, but the city shots are telling. This one is Atlantic City. Most of these areas are pavement and concrete now, but interesting to see how they laid out the privies in the back.
