    July's Trip - Partials and Sodas

    The last time I went picking was July. Work has been so hectic, I haven't been since. I'm hoping I can go once more before the water gets too cold. Mostly slicks and partials but I got a few good ones. Jensen's Wayside Dairy, Shrewsbury Partial J. Cahm & Son, Boston Shawmut Ginger Ale...

    Shawmut Soda Bottle

    I have found two bottles that say "Shawmut" on the side. They were produced by P.J. McCarthy & Sons out of Sherborn MA and couldn't have been any later than 1941 as that company shut down when the US' involvement in WWII began. P.J. McCarthy & Sons started in 1912 and was mainly a cider mill...

    Found a (Howdy) Blue Bird!

    Another bottle in a long line of heart-breakers. I came across this embossed Howdy bottle that had Blue Bird and Cherry Blossom on it. I've never seen one like this before.

    The history of soda pop

    I happened to see this article on Collectors Weekly and found it very interesting. I am a member there and hope it's okay to share it here. Should be very helpful to those who are into old soda bottles. https://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/the-toxic-history-of-soda-pop/

    Too damaged to bring home but worth some photos

    I wanted to show some photos of various bottles I've come across in the past few weeks while out in the woods. They are all either broken or have bad labels but I wanted to document what is out there. For those unaware, I post photos of my good bottles in albums here...

    Mexican Coke and Sprite Bottles

    Today at the grocery store I noticed they were selling singles and 4-packs of glass Coke and Sprite bottles. And the wording on them is in Spanish. I wasn't sure what to make of that. I bought a Sprite out of curiosity and went home to find out more info about this online. It turns out the...

    Nocafeen Bottle

    This is a bottle I fished out of the Charles a few years ago. I have found almost nothing about it online, even here there is only one thread about it from 2006. Apart from that there are a handful of old eBay listings, but they are all dead links or they link to the results page for "caffeine."...

    Bobs Premium Quality King Sized Beverages Bottle

    Yesterday while searching along a steep embankment between a road and a creek I came upon this beauty from 1957. It was laying right on top of some rocks in a dry stream bed that fills up with water when it storms. Almost as if someone laid it there recently. There was no debris covering it at...

    Help Identifying Art-deco Style Bottle

    Hello, I'm new to posting on the forum although your posts have helped me identify many of my bottles. I found this nice bottle in a site around Columbia, SC with other 1920's to 1940's bottles. It's quite heavy for it's size and says "4 LGW2" on the heel. No discernible mark on the base. Thank you!

    Gruber Beverages

    Found this at an excavation site. It's in bad shape, but what paint remains legible says Gruber Beverages. Refreshing. One Pint. Philadelphia, PA. I don't remember Gruber from my childhood so am guessing 40s or 50s. Any info welcome.
