Here are two neat dairy-related items I've picked-up in recent months.
The first is a mercury thermometer.
In original box. Date unknown.

Nice thermometer! Dairy go-withs are one of the things I collect too, though usually only things related to local dairies. One particular go-with I'm looking for is a Quebec milk truck license plate.

I'm kind of regretting that now since I've never seen another, but I figure one will show up at a flea market or something some day.
Canadian Bottles, I bet you'll get one in the next few years.
BackToTheBrickz, I began collecting after finding a bottle in the lake and proving to my mom that it is old, not a reproduction. How I got here, I guess, was just to learn more as it was becoming a serious thing. My introduction here was me commenting back on a post about mosquitoes in Michigan.

I donít remember seeing any but I havenít actually looked for one. Gobs of soda bottles, medicine bottles and all sorts of other items from late 1890ís, early 1900 to 1940 or so. Family has kept the...
