I like those Tab and Patio cans, never seen those before. The Maxwell post is odd, I wonder if it's a grave marker for someone's pet.

never found a patio can before either, not sure how common they are , have found tab before but never in good condition or that many in one spot .

not sure what the post was for , haven't found any others there , it seems there is various rock piles / fire pits there and the area was used as a camping/gathering place long ago

some random Friday night finds , the town was digging some ditches along a major road which is being repaved soon so I poked around but found nothing ( other than coca cola aluminum can from 1988 on far left )

but was walking thru the woods along road and found 2 small piles of cans , there all 7 up or howdy cans , 3 flavours of howdy - cola , orange and root beer but none are in good condition , was 1 one 7 up can which was better than the rest and a few others with some colour

also went back to woodlot/camp site and found 2 more flat top cans , didn't really find anything else old , walked around further and only found modern beer cans which oddly were in the middle of the woods where you wouldn't really expect to see them

is a 60's era coca cola with some colour on the 1 side and rusty one is a carlton club root beer , you can't see it from pic but I was able to scrub it down enough to read it

went back to a spot I found earlier this year , a small dumping of cans from mid to late 60's , found an early 7 up here in the spring if you remember .

some no deposit bottles - 3 fresca ( 2 broken ) , 3 clear no deposit , 5 small green bottles which had a wink label on them , a pepsi stubby that I found at another spot and a green bottle with a D mark

found more cans which included - mountain dew , teem , Canada dry low calorie , fresca , 7 up , Yukon club ginger ale , sport cola , hires , coca cola , Canada dry club soda , carling black label , Tahiti treat aluminum can

2 flat top cans , a diet pepsi from mid 60's which appears to be the first can used in Canada . which still has a lot of colour but some fading . and a cott - root beer , another early one I haven't seen before

some more pictures of the Cott Root Beer , not that familiar with this brand but think it might be a good one as its a flat top , the can itself has no dents and a lot of the colour/design is still there . never found a cott can this early before , not really sure how to clean it further

went back to the roadway site where I found the 7up/howdy cans last week on the hunch there might be more stuff in there . was right , turns out there was some dumping further back in the woods . saw an old stove , fridge , large metal items

in terms of bottles very little , some broken liquor bottles , glass jars , a clear no deposit bottle

more cans mostly from mid 70's , not much in good conditions , some of the brands found were - 7 up , diet 7 up , Howdy - cola , ginger ale , grape , cream soda , faygo diet ginger ale , carlton club - orange , grand prix - cola , loblaws - ginger ale , hires , orange crush
also a " strongbow cider " can ( large can with yellow on it ) didn't realise it was around that long

the howdy cream soda has a lot of colour on both sides and a nice diet 7 up , condition an issue with most of the cans from this site

went back to a spot I checked earlier this year and found a lot of late 80's early 90's era cans near an old dump site . found some more cans but not a lot in good condition

some glass bottles - jam jar , 2 sun pac juice bottles ,

aluminum cans included - coca cola , pc cola , master choice - cola , fairlee apple juice , old Milwaukee

metal cans included - coca cola , pepsi , RC cola , pc ginger ale , A & W , our compliments lemon lime , IGA - cola ( bunch of them but all rusted out ) also a lemon citronella candle

odd find was this plastic 7 up bottle , know its not that old likely from 1990 or 91 , has a slogan on it I've never seen before from 7 up " nothing could be more refreshing " and a baseball contest . no idea if plastic is collectable but its label survived well for being there so long
