Hello,

I grew up spending the summers on a remote island in Alaska. There used to be a old cannery here I have been finding bottles for 15 years and continue to do so I need help identifying my finds sometimes. I will also post a few of the nicer finds I have been able to identify.

First for your consideration is a recent find. I can’t find much on it.

thank you for your time,
TT

Another day another bottle.
For your viewing pleasure.

a kallispell Montana bottle with the remains of a metal cap still affixed. Found under a layer of moss. Very minty embossing.

Based on the shape, the first one looks like a Coca Cola franchise bottler's bottle which would have been used for other flavours, does it say Coca Cola anywhere on it? Those are from pretty far afield from Alaska, I wonder how they ended up way out there.

There was a steamship line that ran up through this cannery in the area I currently live 10,000 people lived in the bay and surrounding area from the 1900s-1960s. As to how a bottle came all the way up here from Idaho no clue! I have some other puzzlers I have no clue on I will continue to post daily. Here is some more photos.

the bottle says around the base patented June, 1 1926
