    RE: kennebunkport, me. medicine bottle

    I'm not sure how common it is, but it is a good looking bottle. Sam Fuller will probably know .
    Anyway, it's a nice looking bottle, and I consider local pharmacy bottles pretty scarce as a general rule.
    Here's what I found out about the Miller family from the four or five old directories I have.

    (All Kennebunlport listings)

    1871 -CE Miller "medicines and fancy goods"
    1877 -CE Miller "medicines and fancy goods" also Charles E Miller "boots and shoes" also CE Miller- "Circulating Library"
    1884 -CE Miller "apothecary and fancy goods" also Edward C Miller "apothecary" also Charles E Miller "boots and shoes" also CE Miller "newspapers,etc." also CE Miller "circulating library"
    1898 -CE Miller "general stores" also EC Miller & CE Miller "apothecaries" also CE Miller "circulating library"

    I also found out Edward C Miller first opened "Miller's Drugstore" in 1881.
    His father , Charles Miller operated another drugstore across the street.
    Charles sold his business in 1908.
    Edward continued operating until 1954 when his son, Frank, retired.
