I don't think I recall seeing anyone around here mention Shorpy - a great website featuring hundreds of fascinating old photographs on all sorts of subjects. It's gained quite a following among the insulator collectors since many of the city scenes contain great views of line construction and insulators that are now rare.

Today's new posts feature a 1909 photo showing young folks working in the Wheaton factory in Millville NJ.

That's so cool... That guy holding the bottle looks like walking death! Amazing to see the inside of a glasshouse that made collectible bottles...

Brings back memories, Steve... Before I found the Fountain of Youth, I used work at Millville! We made lots of amber chemical bottles like the ones in the picture... I saved one just for fun, to remember those days by...
