    Little tiny ink or perfume

    likely 1890's era as you mentioned , doesn't look like an inkwell to me , was so many products put into small bottles like that back then its tough to say

    older looking Corked bottle found in embankment

    this dump does have a different feel than 40's or 50's era dumps , not near the volume still neat to be poking thru one that has the potential to yield something much older and different than I'm used to finding , everything so far been corked bottle / older style

    older looking Corked bottle found in embankment

    I have an old map that indicates there was a couple farms within that area around 1879 but not sure what year they first settled and how long they lasted . but highly likely this stuff came from one of them , surely has to be more down there . I don't get the chance to dig dumps this old that...

    older looking Corked bottle found in embankment

    all I keep wondering is what else is down there ? thinking the bottom would be the most likely area for bottles to be not the steep area where I found this bottle , plan to check it out sometime later today and will update with whatever I find

    found a mushroom shaped cement type marker can anyone identify what this is?

    I'm not sure what it is , might be from something that used to be in that location before . if there had been chairs , tables , something related to that sort of thing either way doubt it has any historical or retail value
