Nice looking bottles. Always good to get more new additions to the site. For reference purposes do you know the year they are made, and the glass makers?

Hi - I found a partial bottle recently: Greenhill Dairy, Wilmington, Delaware. Seems that nobody has posted about it yet. I am having trouble finding any online info about this one. I know that there was a drive-in burger joint by that name here in Delaware... I assume it was a dairy farm first, then the restaurant followed. Do you have this bottle/ any info about this bottle?

I'd guess there is probably thousands of Milk Bottles that have never been posted/pictured on this site. LEON.

Here's three more I dug up with a little history. All from Perry, NY.

Jillson's was a farm that was bought out by the town in 1943. Seems reasonable to think this bottle is pre-1943.

Bonnie View Farm has only one mention in the Perry Herald, so it would seem it existed in 1919. This would be consistent with the subtle amethyst shade it's turning (don't worry this one isn't getting stuck in the window haha)

Sowerby Farms is first mentioned in 1886...

...was successful enough to stick around 1948, when they built the town's first drive thru...

...then was sold in 1966 to new owners. But I reckon the Sowerby bottle is from the 40's/50's as well.
