I poked around on my lunch break where they tore down another House near my work.. Lots of shards & Broken Bottles in Back Corners & what looked like Privy type dirt. Didn't have my shovel or probe which is usually handy. I'm going to poke around again tomorrow if possible. Today the weather was in the 50's. Tomorrow with be a cold snowy 30's. I did find this oddball, Dark Green Champagne type Bottle with kick up/Push up in bottom. The odd thing is the acid etched flowers decorating the Bottle. I've seen other examples of these but this is the first one I dug. And I probably dug a hundred or more just like it minus the flowers which were Slicks I threw back. LEON.
