    broken hutch bottle found when swimming

    I found this bottle near a dock when swimming the other day . it was semi hidden in some sand , obviously been there for some time .

    it would appear to be a " Clark Bros - Toronto " hutch bottle , 1880-1900 era .


    I don't really collect Toronto hutch bottles so not that familiar with it , really don't find a lot of hutch bottles when swimming , this might be the second or third one I've found in total here . although I guess there could be more out there waiting to be found

    You know when you find a Hutch your finding something old. Better then 1950's Cokes & Pepsi aint it? LEON.

    went back to the same spot but did not find anything else except for a no deposit diet pepsi bottle , no sign of anything else ,

    swim conditions weren't ideal but didn't appear to be anything else there , at least not that I could easily find

    I have found similar OLD chards in the most unlikely places also...Makes you scratch your head sometimes. I have found whole unbroken hutches just on the surface too. That really is surprising.
