old paper label Cod Liver oil bottle Northern Ontario
saw this bottle when flipping thru ebay and though it was interesting , don't know if I'd have enough interest to place a bid , but it is a curious item . appears to be fairly old and has a faded paper label from a small town of Massey / Algoma which is in northern Ontario , appears to has a druggist name on it although I can't read it
the same seller also has some other medical related bottles from Canada - a Winnipeg druggist , Ottawa druggist , Collingwood druggist , Peterboro kidney bottle and a Northrop lyman bottle that says CW or Canada west on it .
That's a nice one! You don't often see labeled bottles of that age from towns that small. The Ottawa bottle I believe is fairly easy to find, as I have one and know of three more, including one owned by the store currently located at 71 Sparks Street.
I kind of though the Ottawa one might be common , haven't really seen any bottles from Massey before , I don't think it would of been that big back then , maybe a railway stop ? or mill town maybe or was a mine there ?
actually haven't been there before so not really sure what is there but it doesn't look that big from the map
