Acted on a tip on a location about an hour away from my home, I did as much research as possible, and concluded that the area was most likely a former camping area very near a large lake dating back to ruffly the mid 40's but could be much older, I walked the remnants of the old road leading back to the area finding bottles along the way, Mostly beer which is what I collect, just laying all around,Quarts, Packies, Glass Cans/Handys, Long-Necks, A couple Steinies, and lots of Tavern styles, also a few sodas as well, the ole bags were getting heavy hauling them out!...lol, luckily the bags didn't break on the rather long walk back, had to rest a few times along the way back, overall well worth the trip. One of the pictures is of the remains of one of the two out-houses there.20201001_104654.jpg20201001_101937.jpg20201001_125423.jpg

Looked like a fun day out enjoying nature and finding some history to! What do you do with all those slick beers if you don’t mind me asking?

I have many labels to choose from, some I'll apply labels to for my own collection, and some of the slicks I save for folks that have old six or eight pack holder/carriers that want to fill them with period correct bottles.

That’s awesome. Beer bottles are my favorite to collect! Do you have any photos of your beer bottle collection on this forum? I like to see how others display there stuff.

I usually like to try and take better photos.. but for this quick share these will work. This is the majority of my beer bottle collection and I still have more in boxes. I also have lots of other different types of bottles to that I didn’t share.

That haul looks like it would be from an average Saturday night at my place back in the day, (lol).

Any embossing on the bottles or are they all "slicks"?
