    Searching an old gas station/country store and its privy.

    if there was any dumping going on during the 40's ,50's or 60's , if you walked around , usually those dumps are pretty easy to spot , often if I walked around wooded abandoned properties I'd spot things I'd avoid digging anything if it obviously is too dangerous or too much effort

    anything interesting in the lot ? have to assume there'd be a lot of commons with that amount of volume of bottles . he must of just kept anything he found or could buy cheap . he likely wasn't buying expensive bottles hoarding is kind of hard to explain or understand , I recall there used to...

    it would help if there was a more specific list of brands or bottles you were looking for our bottle/antique shows were all cancelled in 2020 cause of covid and its not clear if they'll even be allowed to have any in 2021 or if organizers have any interest in attempting to have one either way...

    7up- 1953-1986 Canada

    came across a picture of an aluminum "orange chill " can when searching thru some cans online , you can see how bright the colour was originally on these cans , typical green/white 7up colour but orange really stands out
