    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

    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 ?

    the Aylmer bottle looks to be fairly old , maybe 1920's or earlier ?
