Great to see another northern Michigan bottle. I have a website dedicated to the Northern Michigan Dairy history as well as photos of bottles in this area. Kountryfolk.com and take a look under the MI Milkman pages, you will find posting of each of these counties. Sunnybrook is just west of Alpena, not quite a ghost town, it was a very busy community b/c of the D & M railroad from Detroit to Mackinaw that was the primary access from South to North until the roads/expressways came into being. Yes, they have both Pint & Quart Bottles, and there could have possibly been a 1/2 Pt, (never seen one yet), but due to the means of marketing milk bottles in this area, many of that time period we purchased in all 3 sizes. still looking.Here’s what I’ve dug just this year minus a blank slug plate quart milk I haven’t cleaned up yet. I’m not much of a milk bottle collector but I have a few. The Sunnybrook Dairy would be my most rare milk. Cathro is just a ghost town now and I’ve never came across another milk bottle from there. It could possibly be the only one known in the one pint size. I was told there is a quart version of that bottle listed in the Michigan milk book.
This one is a bottom embossed milk out of Detroit pre 1915. I believe it’s embossed J W Ladd Co. I’m hunting right now and don’t have access to it at the moment to confirm that.
