    Oh by the way that Peerless Ink is local to you as well, they were a Vancouver company. Common, but I quite like the art deco design on those. These posts give me such nostalgia for BC, lots of bottles there that showed up in every BC dump and I never see out here. Not sure why Mrs Stewart's Bluing is so common in BC and yet I never see it out here, since the company was based out of Minneapolis.

    Thanks for the info, I did not know they were local. I'm a fan of the design, too.

    What areas of BC did you dig in? I live in Abbotsford and I mainly dig within an hour's drive of here (so basically the Lower Mainland).

    I've done a fair amount of research on dumps in the area, so I've got quite a few leads I plan to follow up on. I don't know how well you know this area, but feel free to message me privately if you're interested in trading information.

    I only ever dug on the Island, so I don't know a thing about sites in the Lower Mainland I'm afraid. I have no doubt that there are plenty of sites around there though. I sure wish I had that kind of opportunity to explore places around here, but living in the city means a lot fewer potential digging locations unless you're into digging privies.
