some more finds from the other day

poked around a railway location , nothing worth keeping

some broken - coca cola , Canada dry , green beer . 2 older aluminum cans ( diet coke , sprite ) , metal cans - sprite , cplus

also poked around a roadway near a highway which is wooded and no homes so though it might contain bottles

founds lots of stuff but not really what I was looking for , some no deposits ( no embossing ) green and amber . broken clear Canada dry bottle , lots of liquor bottles , juice bottle , Canada dry can , metal tin

found some broken soda's - coca cola , Browns Beverages - Gravenhurst , Canada dry , O ' keefes ( not broken one has chip on lip ) , Macdonalds - North Bay - ginger ale .

also a broken milk jug ( no name ) , 4 small screw top bottles , one is for Buckleys , clear one for - Tamblyn drug store . and 2 coca cola cans I found nearby

went back to another dump site I had previously found a couple years ago , this one is near a lake used by cottagers years ago .

wasn't really expecting to find much but came away with a stunning find , a coca cola door push / sign from the 40's > 50's era , found it mixed in with some rusted food cans , lying metal side up

also found some shards from broken soda's - coca cola ( 1948 ) , Brown's beverages , amber orange crush , Collins - Barrie , Huntsville / Lake of Bays Beverages , O keefe's , couple unidentifiable , broken milk jug and glass cup . and 1 marble and lighter fluid can

also went back to a wooded area where I found 7 up / howdy cans last fall incase there was any others still there

turns out there was many still hidden in the ground and some were in better condition than ones I found last fall

there are from around 1975 > 76 , all seven up brand cans - 7 up , diet 7 up , Howdy - orange , cola , grape , cream soda

note ( the short diet can has been cut in half and crunched into that size by someone not made that small )

also found a pepsi swirl in the leaves at a road corner on a busy road nearby , it has an early date of 1959 , believe that's first year they used the swirl

Oh wow! A lot to show!

with the covid restrictions in Ontario rate now there isn't really anything to do . spending free time looking for things in the wild and finding a lot of stuff at the moment ,

easiest time of the year to find bottles in the woods or outdoors here is spring before the plants / leaves come out . I can spot a bottle in the woods rather easily even if its partially hidden under stuff

Yes that is very true. I also like it because of not half as many nippers around!
