    Hollywood laboratories bottle

    went poking around a 1940's dump that is along an abandoned highway near where i live , found a few interesting items there recently such as G & W whiskey bottle and javex bottles . anyways today i found a very unusual bottle , its about 5 inch's high and curved shape , has a star H L logo on front and says " hollywood Laboratories " on bottom .
    never seen one before in this dump and don't recell seeing this bottle before , no clue where its from , google search came up empty as well . the dump is 1940's canada stuff so that may give us a clue . anyways if anyone has this bottle allready or knows more about it yet me know as i'm getting curious .

    RE: Hollywood laboratories bottle

    OR could it be related to this product? The bottles have some similarities.

    no p before the hollywood , but it is similar to the bottle in picture so maybe it was also for some sort of cosmetic product like hair oil .

    @ RCO, does the star have an L and a B as the monogram? Looks like it. Maybe take a closer look or another picture.
