just came across this rusted motor oil can , really don't know alot about oil cans in general but do often come across different ones. not sure i've seen this one before though

called " Bulldog " motor oil , says by Eaton's Canada , french on one side and english the other , rusted badly on the other side


it was found outdoors in a wooded area off a nearby roadway , was some other rusted items nearby and junk , maybe tossed there years ago, this was the condition i found it in , made no attempt to clean it yet at all

despite being a small town , there was an Eaton's store downtown it was open until the late 90's , not sure what year it first opened but had been there for a while , thinking this can dates from the 60's ? or 70's but really not sure , is some similar cans online but don't collect oil cans so know little about them or which ones are rare or not .

not sure i've ever found one of those in good condition or condition that it could be cleaned up enough to be worth saving

feel like one of the dumps i dug at last year but had found years ago had some old oil cans but i'm not 100 % sure what brand they were , alot there but weren't in very good condition

i don't know about these ones there pretty far gone , this dump isn't far from where i live so checked on my way by and they are " red indian " brand oil cans but these ones are pretty rusted . can barely see the word " red " on the one can , appears to be a fair number of them there but rusted away , also saw one nearby for " castrol " oil

this dump was on an old abandoned highway and wondered if it had some connection to a highway garage to have so many , also rusted auto parts and such
