Nash and Roue, James ready ,Thomas Nash and Simeon Jones. Saint John bottles.
Those are some really nice bottles! I didn't know that internal thread stoppers were ever used in the Maritimes. Is that one on the left a round bottom bottle? I didn't know of there being any embossed round bottom bottles used in Canada at all.
Yeah the one on the left is a round bottom Nash and Roue from Saint John NB.
Cool stuff! NB has several round bottoms, I believe. I've seen them from Moncton, St. Stephen, and Fredericton (as well as St. John).
I've seen the James Ready before but not sure if I've seen the other bottles , we don't get a lot of NB bottles this way
Yeah we don't get a lot around here either. That's one area of Canadian collecting I know almost nothing about.

Animal Urine! never thought of that...hopefully not the case here! Thanks for mentioning though!
There's over 60 bottlers and producers of drinkable liquids known from my home town outside of milk and medicine. You'd be lucky to find 40 in the library, museum, newspaper, and internet archives....
