    Rare small town druggist bottle

    Just found this one yesterday. Technically found it a month ago but it fell out of my pack in the woods and didn't realize it until I was home. Figured I'd never find it again but I did. I was losing sleep over it the whole time. There can't be too many of these out there. Connellsville is a small town of less than 10,000 people. I cannot find anything about this drug store online.

    Here's a write up on J C Moore, Druggist, on Water St in Connellsville from 1887. Middle column, next to last paragraph. Looks like he opened for business there in 1869. Nice bottle!

    Thanks for that info. Opened right after the Civil War era. That is very helpful and interesting! I am posting an image of the article, for historical / educational purposes. Copyright goes to the book "Industrial and Commercial Resources of Pennsylvania".

    Nice! That is a great bottle, and I'd lose sleep over that one too!

    Thanks! It is now the favorite bottle that I own. I need to go back again and sort through the area when I have the time and patience. To see if there are any other bottles similar to this one. Also here is a photo of the bottom of it. It has three stars, a "D", "PAT JAN 5 189_ "
