  • I believe that Cream of Kentucky was a bourbon.
    A bottle that still has part of the State of Indiana tax thingie on it.
    A lead rooster
    The back to a pocket watch.
    A creepy sailor boy
    A dog
    A 1-handed Scotsman
    A bottle of Certo, I think it was used to help the gelling process when making jams and jellies.
    The back end to an old timey firetruck. The part that makes it look sort of like a train, was a big tank where the water was stored.
    And a bottle of Lee's Creo Lyptus. Guaranteed to cure cough, bronchial asthma, croup, and whooping cough. It contained creosote and eucalyptus. Yum!



  • Day 17: Not much to show for this one.

  • This is such an interesting thread and an interesting hobby. So many cool little items. Keep it up!



  • @crepe Thanks! Will do!



  • This is really cool, when you started this thread I never expected you to find so many things regularly! You can soon open a museum!



  • @axel For better or worse my little bottle dump is starting to run dry. I'll have to find a new spot, haha.



  • Day 19:

    ....the aluminum cover to an old tv dinner...and a chunk of iron.

    Part of a not so old shovel, a weird little metal wheel, a quarter, a washer, another chunk of iron, and some play money.
