    Return to the 1920s-1940s dump; Gallon Jugs and Cobalt!!!

    I returned to the dump I found a couple weeks ago and today I managed to pull out a good haul in about 3 hours. I also found two one gallon glass screw cap jugs that I had to leave and I may or may not bring back eventually (Not much room in the backpack). I also found 3 more canada dry bottles not in the finds picture below. Here are my finds:

    That Esso bank is great, what a shame that it's broken! Never seen one of those before.

    That's quite a haul to carry in your back pack! Yes, that Esso bank is very unusual. I'm also excited for the green milk glass pepper shaker

    Excellent! I would take those home any day! Keep looking, because it can only get better!

    I will definitely go back to dig again. I also left some bottles that I wanted to bring back but couldn't carry. I will get them the next time I go.

    I have a site that won't be accessible until spring, and I have several bottles in a pile for when I go back.
