Tonight's gallery ! So after 20+ years these have come out of the garage to see daylight and get cleaned up ! These were dug back in the mid 90's when I worked on a residential construction site in Media PA. The Aqua crown top in the back had an AB in a pyramid shape on the bottom, would this be an Anheiser Busch bottle from Philadelphia ? The last picture is a nice Olive glass beer done in a turn mold, no seams and applied lip.

One other bottle in this gallery 8 3/4 Amber flask. Embossed with two concentric circles. The outer band reads UNION MADE C.B.B.A. of US & Co and center circle read TRADE MARK. The bottom has two overlapping triangles with faint symbols in the center, but they are not legible.

the embossing on the chester PA clear pop bottle is interesting , I haven't seen that sort of design before

I often wonder how many old bottles are just sitting around in storage , where older collectors either passed away or were forgotten about over time , whatever reasons they've been left in storage

Script / soda beer

RCO,
Thanks, yes it is really neat script. I did a Brewery search on it and there isn't any listing for it. So it might be a soda. Someone had posted one a few weeks ago. I'd love to find out some history on it. I found out through the Brewery Registration that there was a Gulph Brewers in the town I lived in Gulph Mills, PA. I would have loved to find one of them ! 1857 1859.

Nice collection!I dug one of those "AB" beers in South Philly a few months back. That fancy scripted bottle is crazy cool. Thx for posting!
