These bottles didn't make it

The past Thursday when temperatures reached a steamy 80 degrees in PA, I was able to get out and continue searching a spot I've been working on for about a year. Sadly there were a lot of late 1800's / early 1900's bottles that were intact enough to read but were broken. Many were near depressions in the ground where it looked like someone may have dug years ago. I just wanted to document that these bottles exist. I did a search on here and could not find any results for a Masontown bottle. I think the Marshall Uniontown bottle was a blob-top.

I agree with sandchip, cool even though they are broken. It's great to watch you pull out bottles with town names I am familiar with. It gives me something to hope for when I am in PA.

Don't toss them away - make drinking glasses out of them!

I've been doing that for a while now, and always pick up sweet, but topless bottles and give them a new life.

Cheers,

I thought about that. I've seen people on Etsy who sell them. But I don't have the special equipment to cut and grind glass. While I"m here I might as well add this Stegmaier beer bottle from Wilkes-Barre.
