    check out the cap on this Bim-bo.

    anyone have any info on this 1950-60’s, ACL bottle and cap. An old post says Bimbo glass figurines date to 1920-30’s ,and was the sidekick of Betty Boop. I don't believe this bottle has that connection. If it was a USA brand, it moved to Mexico sometime later.

    Christy & Huggins Ice Co. Murfreesboro TN

    I dug a bottle this weekend, and after a web search, found more about the bottler than the bottle. I just placed the bottle in a vat of white cleaning vinegar, to see if it dissolves the rust streak in a couple days.

    Mississippi SS & Art Deco sodas, Jackson & Biloxi

    I've been searching relics , both native American and Civil War, so the bottle digging has been put on the back burner.

    Results of eight hours on a 1850-1880's farm site , using metal detectors to locate possible dump sites or trash pit.
