I finally found time last Friday to hit the river one last time before winter kicks in. Even with a wetsuit, the water was frigid. Who would have guessed? Swimming in the Charles in October might be a little cold. We've had so little rain over the past month that the Charles is very low. In some places, the water was only 6 inches deep and I bumped along as I swam. I didn't get the haul I wanted, but I pulled some nice ones anyway :)

A Callahan Whiskey with no neck. I can't find a lot on this bottle, unfortunate it is broken.

A massive Canada Dry bottle. It used to have an ACL label but there is no residue to see on this bottle.

I pulled two of these. Based on the shields, I was thinking Canada Dry but I can't find any matching ones in my search.

I only pulled one piece of china, a W. S. George soap bar holder.

A bottom with a crest and a "P" in it.

I will post the rest of my finds as replies.

3 Cokes; Boston, Sagamore, and Worcester respectively. The Boston is a 1938, my earliest Coke to date, and has the patent number embossed under the logo.

Salt shaker? Either 837 or 337 on the bottom.

A Hood's 1/2 pint milk bottle, one of my favorites from the trip. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, it got a few big cracks in it. Still together, just fragile now. It reads "HALF PINT," "121 REG," "SEALED UGP SS," and "LIQUID" around the bottom rim.

A large jar, similar in design to an Atlas E-Z Seal, but no mention of the brand. Some light googling returns that it is a Leotric fruit jar but it has no embossed name as most examples do.

Whatever this might be.
