With all the soda, beer and mineral water bottles to be had from Paterson, I'll never understand why so few old milks are ever found. That being said, I am very happy to have added this C.W. DeWitt - Eastside Dairy quart to my collection, it's got just the right amount of SCA to give that extra appeal it deserves. He is found in the Paterson directories starting in 1892, he is listed there until 1905, after which he and the family move to Nebraska, this is a great early milk of his...

Love these early milks. Galveston had a number of super early milk bottles (including the first glass milk bottle from Texas)...it's always a great day when I dig one and I've never dug a duplicate.
