Crews opened a new hole this week and I was able to dig a few BIM bottles.

[FONT=&amp]Left: Embossed: Charles Hires Improved Root Beer Extract, Philadelphia, PA[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Left Center: Barrel-style jar, embossed: R. Bruekmann's Mustard, Philadelphia, PA[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Right Center: Slick beer with base embossed "CC&Co." (Carl Conrad & Co)[/FONT]
[FONT=&amp]Right: ceramic doll torso and legs[/FONT][FONT=&amp]
Foreground: Round-bottom soda, unembossed.

Couldn't find anything on the Bruekmann's mustard barrel. Any help appreciated.

RelicRaker,
Are you in town or in the suburbs ? I'm outside Exton and they are opening up a lot of ground around me near Civil War era homesteads for town houses.

I'm in the city. But that sounds cool.

Returned to the site and found a small druggist bottle, embossed "Stadelman Ardmore." Stadelman's Pharmacy was founded in 1868 by Samuel Stadelman, and in 1885 became the first business on Philadelphia's Main Line to have a telephone switchboard. Bottle is BIM, likely 1880s-90s.

Hi RelicRaker
I have this St Cloud Pharm bottle to trade if you are ready to let the Ardmore med go... The St Cloud is about 5" tall.
Thanx
