I dig up antique bottles for forgotten history
I'm still polishing this Dumpdiggers post,
Antique Glass Bottles Found Under Southcore Financial Centre & Delta Hotel Toronto, The Story of Rees' Wharf
I'm still looking for a photo of Dr William Rees 1800 - 1874 can anyone on here help?
My focus is on treasure - the valuable antique glass bottles that were liberated from the ground by excavators,
This Wm Robertson tan color ginger beer bottle is now the property of a famous Toronto bed and breakfast that has a unique display of early Tornoto and area stoneware ginger beer bottles
The Pilgrim soda and Commercial Ink Co London Ontario bottles are by far the nicest specimens found.
However it turns out that there was another gem, this Brayn Bros Lager Beer bottle is really rare and
is key to the history of Hornby Ontario and there's a good story here - its a puzzle how a Hornby beer bottle ended up down here in the lake and what is now the the base of Toronto, or perhaps this is testament to the quality and distribution of Brayn Bros Brewery in the early 1870s.
