Need some help finding info on this bottler. Found nothing period. Looking for ads or time frame, no marks as to the glass house that produced it. Was told its a hard to get bottle and found several but all had crown damage. If anyone has or knows a reference to it please share. Its a small town. Went for a small creek walk with wife and son and found a small dumpsite. Wanted to dig this cistern but full of water from recent rain. Thanks for any help. Sam

Thank you bottlebud that is a good thread to follow. Hemi, i am sure its a cistern as i found it a yr ago intact. About 12ft deep and 8ft across brick lined. Tried to find away down without caving the roof in. Seems mother nature did the job for me. Tried to probe for privy but the soil is black clay so theres to resistance to it. To many cracks for a probe. Fellow member on here wants to dig it out with me this fall. Also want to get back to the soda spot. Thanks for the replys really helped. These are a few ads i found researching the soda. Enjoy.
