Found a good mix of things my last trip out. The pheonix is a great galveston pictoral hutch. The galveston brewing pint comes in several different varieties. This clear version is new to me and the 4th this size in my collection. Also dug a nice early India Chologogue that just missed having a pontil.
Tried out a new spot this weekend. Galveston can be a little tricky, since so much of the island was raised after the 1900 storm. Still, set out hoping to find some 1910/1920s era stuff. No such luck. I didn't find much of anything. A headless local 50s dr pepper, 4 marbles, and this brick, fired in Marlin, Texas.
Very cool bottles. Have you ever found anything with the name Sampson on it? My great grandfather was a prominent doctor there through the hurricane. I think he moved away in 1902 or 1903. The Arthur F. Sampson house survived the storm and is still there in the historic district
Here are my finds from the new spot. As was mentioned, we found 6' of fill (likely from 1905 or so). Hoped to find a privy or something in the newer fill, but no such luck. Did a lot of probing and found one 1950's trash pit with three 6-1/2 OZ Cokes from Galveston. My 10 year old son actually probed the oldest pit of the day...early 1920's trash pit with a couple of generic citrates and a poison bottle. We probed some stuff deeper than the fill but because the fill is sand and is saturated with water down at about 5', there is no way to get to the deep trash unfortunately...we tried but no dice-the sand sloughs in too quickly. We did have 6 kids between the two of us and the kids had fun, so that was a positive!
