This is a perfect example of why people like old bottles. Not only the glass but it's the history. Glad I could help.

Nice bit of research Robby. There's a nice variety of information on that History Link site. Numerous articles on now non-existent towns, many of which were situated in what later became the Seattle Watershed and are off-limits to the general public today.

I love a good history site. Historylink.org is a great site. Thanks for the compliment. The hardest part was figuring out what the embossing actually said. Once I figured it was a G instead of a C it was easy.

I find here most druggist bottles are highly collectable and hard to find with the exception of some of the common ones from Toronto ( our largest city ) , you often see them for sale in antique malls for a long time so called stale merchandise


the ones from small towns would be especially hard to find , some I've never even seen in person before and rarely see online
Thank you. You are very helpful.

You'd be surprised at how cheap the Eastern Ontario ones are. I've built up a decent collection of them, including from smaller towns, without ever paying more than $10 for one. It's always surprised me how undervalued druggist bottles are apart from select geographical areas, but I'm not complaining because it makes them easier to collect!

the lack of bottle or antique shows has made it tough to find anything new , our last shows were in spring/summer of 2019 which seems like a long time ago

the last big Ontario bottle show ( Toronto ) was april 2019

I've actually found some at yard sales here but has barely been any yet this year but should be some now that Ontario is re opening somewhat
