    Yeah, I was pretty happy to find the Shano. It seems practically unknown, or at least no other examples of the actual bottle comes up when I search online.

    I was guessing 1890 to 1910 on the lid myself, but the only thing I'm basing that on is the amount of bubbles in the glass.

    Wow, how time flies. I didn't realize it had been over a month since I posted in this thread. I have been back there a few times since I last updated.

    I finally found an intact Atlas E-Z Seal quart jar (I've found lots of broken ones at several other dumps). The lid was missing, but I found a good one at a different dump.

    I can take better photos if anyone is curious about a specific bottle.

    I found my first one the other day! As soon as I realized what it was, I remembered your post.

    The bottom says "Porlip Oval Reg'd '37".

    I looked up Porlip Oval on Google image search and a few examples of this style of bottle came up. No others from Woodward's, but some other Canadian ones.

    I also found this druggist glass not far from where I found that bottle...

    It says "Geo O. Hill, Druggist" on one side and "Elmwood" on the other. Unfortunately, it has a crack in it.

    Those are some great finds. I had no idea that medicines were ACL too - thats good to know.

    I love all the different lids to the fruit jars that you've been able to find.

    Keep it up and thanks for sharing.

    the Woodward's is definitely an acl druggist although not sure how collectable one from Woodward's would be when compared to the ones from smaller independent druggists , they seem to be the ones in more demand

    not that familiar with the Woodward's chain but my understanding is they had a lot of stores at some point

    Those are a couple of really nice finds! I've never seen a Woodward's ACL druggist before, even if it was a large chain it's still a local chain so that makes it a good one in my books. These ACL bottles were also not in use for very long so it's likely pretty rare regardless. And the local phone number makes it even better.
    That dose cup is also really nice, regardless of the crack. Do you have any idea where it's from? I can't find any towns named Elmwood. There is a neighbourhood called Elmwood in Winnipeg and a town called Elmwood Park in New Jersey though.

    I didn't realise 'Woodward's " was a western Canada chain only , that might make it a bit more unusual . and the acl is all there , which helps , as sometimes it gone or faded


    I'm confused about the Elmwood too , there are some streets and locations in BC referred to as Elmwood but not towns . one street in Burnaby BC but not sure it be large enough to have a druggist , it is near the hospital though , when I checked on google maps

    if its not from BC , the Elmwood area of Winnipeg would be the next logical option , although along way to travel for a dose cup

    Thanks guys.

    Yes, Geo. O. Hill was a Winnipeg druggist according to my research.

    As for how it found its way here, I haven't the faintest clue.

    Ah, there we go! Dose cups were reusable items, so someone probably kept it after moving from Winnipeg to BC and then threw it away after it was damaged.

    Also love the Jar lids. Also the Dose Cup, I've never dug or owned one of those.
