The Horlicks and the two jars beside it are like 1910s era.
had though those 2 jars were earlier than the 1930's as they weren't screw top , wasn't that familiar with the Horlicks malted Milk or sure what year it was from

if this stuff came from an old farm it make sense there'd be some older items tossed it

Aqua Horlicks are usually older than the clear ones and the jar to the left looks to be turning SCA so that one is definitely early.

other day came across another small dumping in the woods , not in the same spot but off a small highway in that area .

though it might of been bigger but only seemed to contain a few bottles , mainly green and clear beer bottles from 40's or 50's ? , also a couple amber jars . mostly broken other than 1 clear beer bottle and amber jar

funny we were talking about how you could literally find bottles lying in the woods a few weeks back and yesterday I found a small dump site by chance in the woods here . was walking and saw bottles poking thru the leaves and an old metal pail .

found it along a small highway near a lake , a wooded area with nothing nearby and which didn't really appear that interesting . suppose this dump could be from a nearby house or summer cottage /campsite maybe ? or a random roadway dumping .

it appears to be from the 30's era , haven't found any local soda bottles or milk jugs yet . a lot of condiments and jars so far .

several brands of ketchup ( Heinz , Clarks , CC co ) , some various jars , one light purple , green . a screwtop Watkins bottle , some plain druggists .

an odd Catsup bottle for Tiger Catsup which looks like a beer bottle ( online a post says it dates from 1927-37 ) and from Canada

only 1 soda bottle so far a large 30 oz clear " Canada dry " bottle

sorry due to lighting some of the pictures didn't turn out that well , will go back sometime next week to find items I missed as still more there

Nice find. Ever notice how honey bottles never change. They are the same thing today!

which jar was for honey ? I never noticed that's what it was for
I think you had two in there, they are a round to a flattened oval up from the base. Screw thread top and sometimes with gentle rings around the upper shoulder. If you know honey, you spot those immediately. I sure spotted that horlicks, I chuckled as you mentioned it.

finally made it back to this small dump but didn't really find much of interest . mostly a lot of condiments and glass jars , a clear beer bottle ? or ketchup similar to other I found there but no embossing

neat pouring glass but its broken , a liquor bottle for BC distillers , no sign of any soda's

also poked around at a nearby dumping I found last year which is nearby but found even less there , kind of wet to dig , found some broken liquor/ beer bottles , some cups , a broken coca cola with a date of 38 on bottom

The glass looks quite thick on those green beers, I would think more like 20's or 30's on those.

not sure there that old , green bottles that size were used for beer here in the 40's > 50's .

also seen them used for a local ginger ale too , they used that bottle and put a paper label on it
