    1870's/80's dump dig

    Wow, nice! Love the turtle inks. Never dug one. The stoneware penny inks I've found occasionally.

    Creek walk marbles

    My gritty city creek is rocky and very tough on marbles. Here are today's finds.

    SF Simes —Philly Druggist

    Thx Sandchip. Yeah it's got nice roll marks from the dump. The embossing is faint, but hey, an 1880 local druggist pictorial doesn't come up often.

    B. Satinsky Philadelphia bottle

    Love the design. The neighborhood is among Philly's oldest, very close to the Delaare River waterfront. Atlases from 1895 and 1910 show a soap factory at the site, but several docs from the PA Bureau of Foods and PA Dept of Agriculture list a B. Satinsky as a "soda water maker" in 1912. By...

    Another Late 1800s Hole

    And it was face-down when I dug it, so II was expecting a slick—stunned to see so much text.

    1890s Pickle?

    Looks like the era I dig (1875–1895). Some of these with the narrrow mouths contained salad dressing, chutney, chow-chow, or other thick sauces.

    Another Late 1800s Hole

    Okay, went back after this morning's rain and found a large BIM embossed "Cunningham & Co / Philada / This Bottle Not To Be Sold" and "1893" on the base.

    why would a bottle have a rounded bottom,cannot stand on it's own

    Connor & McQuaide squat

    Another Late 1800s Hole

    Made what will likely be my final walk of this site and turned up a few smalls. Best was this mini Bromo Caffeine. Blown in a mold.

    Underwoods Ink Bottle

    Nice find, especially embossed. I dig 19thC ink & mucilage bottles fairly often, but most are slick.

    Brown transferware bowl

    Almost all the ceramics I find at dig sites are broken beyond saving. But this was nearly whloe so I brought it home. No base mark.

    Just pulled a tall early crowntop Hires. Base embossed, or I'd never have known what it was.
