I have one I want to dig badly behind an early 1800s house. dug a test pit and hit 1800s glass and ironstone about a foot down. Never got to dig it yet though, but I will! I've been looking mainly for the old houses because I want to get into a pontil era pit to start off, lol.Great job on recovering those bottles.
After reading through all of these digging posts, I feel like finding and securing permission to dig a privy is definitely a goal for me this winter to line up for spring.
I looked up the house. Very nice! I like the wrap around porch on both stories.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
One or two a day, found one broken one in 1/2 years. Would like to see the Chicago one. One in half yearsWent out again on Sunday with my son (he's 7). Found an area just loaded with little tiny trash pits...and many of them had hutch sodas in them. Pulled out 10 total Galveston hutch sodas...some had damage but still a pretty incredible haul for me...usually lucky to find one or two in a day. Also found a few Galveston crown tops including one that is very tough to find...a fat Lone Star Bottling Works with F.C.M. Greb embossed. Never dug one before...they are a bit strange dimensionally. Also found a North Western Brewery bottle from Chicago...not sure how it traveled all the way to Galveston. I'll try to take some photos this evening.
