not much rain lately so its a bit drier than normal here . decided to poke around a nearby river and small creek than runs thru a park near it .

didn't find much along the river , 1 area of broken bottles , some older . a lot of clear beer bottles , a broken milk jug , some soda's from 60's - Stubby bev , coca cola , howdy . and a 30 oz Canada dry bottle

in the creek I found a clear druggist bottle lying in it , no name/embossing on it . but marked " king oval " on bottom

also found a small car battery

went back to creek a second time , found a couple damaged cans from 90's ( pepsi / hires ) , ocean spray bottle and an older quart like green beer bottle , also seen this bottle used for a local ginger ale

apparently I don't need marketplace , I find bottles on hillsides .

poked around a wooded area near a park I had been to earlier this year . I never put any though there might be bottles there until this year , been swimming there many times since 2013 but never walked thru the woods nearby

had only found some beer and liquor first 2 times but on Saturday I found some soda's

a broken coca cola hobbleskirt from 40's , Brown Beverages - gravenhurst 7 oz bottle ,broken milk jug , ketchup bottle

shock find a clear 7 oz coca cola (company of Canada ) straight side from 1910's era , in the leaves/plants near the old ketchup , not even that dirty only some dirt and 1 slug in it , washed in it nearby lake and looked like new

also an odd metal mini tea pot which looks to be early

I checked that small dried up creek area that is near where I live .

its not really a big creek and not an area where you'd ever see people and no evidence of dumping along its edges but seems to be stuff in the creek itself

found some more liquor bottles , beer bottle

a pepsi swirl bottle from 1966 , really dirty but cleaned up

a small aqua bottle ( not sure what its for ) and a blue glass screwtop inkwell , no name or marks on it . this creek is near the old school so likely came from there

went back to the " hillside " location yesterday , walked all around once and literally found nothing . then did a second try and came across a small area of dumping near a rock on far end .

it doesn't appear to be that old maybe 20's or 30's era , is a date of 1931 on a broken milk jug bottom

found a couple broken plates , pouring glass , have makers marks from UK on back , wood and son England

some broken bottles , sauces , jars , purple bottles . part of a camp coffee chickory bottle . a 12 sided clear jar

a light green glass serving tray broke in 2 parts

slow weekend , checked the creek again but found literally nothing except 1 stubby beer bottle

haven't made it in swimming yet but hope to this week , will start a new thread for swim finds if I find anything

only found 1 bottle I found interesting , in a roadside park . an early clearly Canadian bottle for mineral water . based on the company name on back is from late 80's > early 90's era

was driving down a road I've been on many times before and decided to check out an area I was curious about .

literally as soon as I walked in came across an area of rusted cans and some bottles

not much in the way of bottles , some glass jars , liquor and an FBI orange juice bottle

some really interesting soda cans though , early sprite cans from 60's , 5 diamond beer cans ( really rusted mostly ) , Canada dry ginger ale and coca cola , Heinz tomato juice

2 Fanta flat top cans from 60's , orange and grape , will post more pictures of some of these cans to cans section when I clean them up more and get better pictures

poked around that hillside again and a nearby lakeside lot that appears to have been some sort of hang out spot years ago based on the amount of liquor bottles there

not much on the hill , some broken glass jars , sauce bottles , not broken jars , beer bottle , broken plate , metal pot ?

by the lake , lots of liquor from 70's or 80's , amber no deposit no embossing , lipton iced tea bottle , some rusted cans - coca cola / pepsi , couple golf balls

also checking this area with metal detector incase they lost anything , it went nuts for that metal item below amber ND but its just a piece of crushed tin

Those Fanta flat tops look like they're in pretty good shape, I'm sure they would clean up really well with an acid bath.
