Pulled a few more from that hole since my last post. This amber strap-sided flask is kinda cool. BIM but no embossing.

Shoot, those are always nice to find. I see a big ol' bubble, too.

Returned to the honey hole for a few more finds...
[FONT=&amp]Left: Cone ink. Base embossed: "Carter's" (damaged lip).[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Center: Unembossed sauce bottle or liquor "nip." (Any help with the ID is appreciated.)[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Right: Early "Chesebrough Mfg. Co. Vaseline." (I know these Vaseline jars are very common but since it's my only BIM example, I'll keep it.)

Returned today after the waters had receded a bit. Managed to rescue a Rumford (likely another baking powder) and a John C. Hurst, druggist. Hurst (1827–1891) was a wholesale druggist and importer with offices at 825 Market St. and a residence at 3818 Chestnut St. Both bottles are BIM, c. 1880.

Returned again today and dug a couple of smalls. One has a little fancy on it and a place for a label—perhaps a fragrance bottle.

Probably the last bottle I'll be able to dig from this site, as they're about to pour the foundation.
Sides embossed "Burnett / Boston." Small clear rectangular BIM.
