Here is a set of different sized ACL pharmacy bottles from Ellicott City all from the Patapsco Pharmacy. I have dug about 50 of these but none have any paint left. You can easily see the ghost of the paint when you hold the bottle under light so I still keep them. I think they are still cool even without the ACL. I know there are a few sizes that Im missing, but here is my run of them so far.
Here are more Patapsco Pharmacy ACL meds. These are a different shape though. I know there are quite a few more sizes of these that I don't have too. I missed buying a dose cup from this pharmacy that I once saw. What a shame. I really wish I would have bought it.
My hometown does have a lot of different milks but unfortunatly most are very rare and only known by a few examples. I like to collect all the different mold variations of each milk as well. Like different style wording, different glass companies, differen neck designs, and whether they have a dot on the shoulder or not. I have all the different mold variations out there of the Newton Farm Dairy quart. Here are two. The one on the left was made by Buck Glass Company of Balt. and is dated 1942 and has smaller embossing where it says one quart liquid. Also the dots are slightly different. The one on the right is a Thatcher bottle and is also dated 1942.
Here are the other two different mold variations of the Newtons. They are both made by the Buck Glass Company of Balt. It is hard to see the difference between them but the one on the left has a dot on the shoulder under the dimpled neck and the one on the right does not. The one without the dot on the right is newer. It is also lighter and shaped a bit different.
Here are my Newton Farm Dairy pints. I think i am missing one mold variation. They are all Buck, so I assume theres a Thatcher out there just like the quart. The dot neck design is slighlty different on each bottle since they are all different years. The one in the middle also has the dot on the shoulder and the other two dont. The one on the right has very small hobnails on the neck compared to the other two in the pic.
Here are the two slugplate half pint bottles that I have from EC. They are both hard ones to find since there really aren't many half pint milks from Ellicott City. The left is a Newton Farm Dairy and the right is a Rockland Dairy. The Newton is dated 1940 and the Rockland is 1938. I know there are a few mold variations of each of these but I havent been able to acquire any yet since they are hard to get.
Here are three different Rockland Dairy pints. None have actual neck designs. The one on the left is a different shape and doesnt have the dot on the shoulder. The one in the middle does have the dot and the one on the right also has the dot but doesn't have registered on the heel. I know there is also a qt without registered on the heel too. The ones without registered are from the first year this dairy was in operation;1930 and are pretty hard to get. These are all Buck Glass Company.
Here are 3 more different pints from Rockland Dairy. The left has dots embossed around the neck. The middle is ribbed and has C.E. Hobson instead of Chas. E. Hobson. The ones with this name were only made by Thatcher since Thatcher used bigger letters. They couldnt fit Chas on the bottles so they abreviated it. The one on the right is also C.E. Hobson but isn't ribbed.
I know Im missing a few different Rockland bottles even though I have so many. Here are some quarts from them. The left is a ribbed one by Thatcher. As you can see on the quarts that Thatcher made, they were able to actualy fit Chas. The right has dots on the neck.
Here are two more Rockland quarts. The difference is that one has the dot on the shoulder and the other doesn't. Neither have a neck design. Overall you can see that Rockland put out alot of different bottles.
