Nice, thanks for taking and posting the pictures of the dig! In the 3rd to last picture of a bunch of bottles, are there 2 (ship) "captain's" style bar bottles in the front? Never seen shards of one come out of the ground. Cool finds all-around.

Thanks Plumb. What bar bottles are you talking about?

Nice "PIPE", it looks more like a broken pour spout off of a Bennington Tea Pot. If not, could you please post a photo of the whole thing.

Hey Rick, Dave & Bill,

Thanks for sharing your efforts in the depths of that dump, and it do look deep, it do.



Great first bottle up! Is that Ivory Blacking in Blue? I've not seen that one before. Cue the music...



What's the story on Ivory Blacking, please?

Realy like that Oakley Soap & Perfumery Co., Florida Water, too.

From.
From.

Check out this 1885 NY Times Ad, and another from Illustrated New York, 1888.

Will there be after bath photos?
