Yard Sale find , several boxes full of beer and pop bottles
we don't usually have yard sales here in march but a house nearby had sold and I guess they have to be out soon . they had a number of antiques and such , I guess the bottles were from a father in laws collection from what they told me . it didn't sound like they were that attached to them . I was originally only going to buy the 4-5 bottles I really wanted but when I realised I could get them all and the dr pepper crate for a very reasonable price I bought them all .
nothing especially old in the mix other than 1 older hutch from Pennsylvania , how it got here I don't know. most of the bottles be from 40's-60's , a couple older ones , most of the locals from places an hour north or south of where I live , like northern Ontario cities of Sudbury and north bay . as well is smaller cities north of Toronto like Orillia , barrie and penetanguishene .
won't be able to take pictures of every bottle but try and find the more interesting ones
not a lot of embossed or art deco bottles in the mix but was a few , from left to right -
Cresson springs soft drink works - Cresson PA , Orange quench - Wm Taylor Owen Sound Ont , Silver Foam Sudbury Ont, Cochrane bottling works - Cochrane Ont , Flirt - Montreal quebec ? , Penetang Bottling works - Penetang Ont ,
the Cochrane bottling works bottle is an odd find , as Cochrane is a small town way up north , way up there , and not that big , hard to believe it had its own bottler , I'd say bottle is from 30's or 40's ?
Orange crush amber bottle , dominion bottling works Kirkland lake Ont, Temagami dry ginger ale - Mcdonalds beverages North Bay Ont , Nesbitt's of California - Ottawa Ont , Garlands Beverages North Bay Ont
an old Aylmer Canning co - ketchup bottle , Silver foam ginger ale - Sudbury Ont, Vitality - Petawawa Ont , Plus 4 mixer - Kist Stratford Ont , Stubby amber bottle , unsure of its age ? looks too new to be old
Yeah digging is sometimes a pain! I once had to dig through a pile of chickenwire, cable and cast iron stove pieces ugh! My work was paid off though when that spot produced a rare local milk! It pays...
Still working the site. I'm sure I'll find a blob or a med. Just got to keep poking away. Farm dumps are very tricky, they didn't usually dump everything in one area and you have to keep working the...
