I'm still looking for a photo of Dr William Rees 1800 - 1874 can anyone on here help?

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

*is a fellow torontonian* You look really familiar (if that's you in the picture). anyways, welcome and it's cool what you do, i've seen some of those bottles lying around the giant ship they have parked by cherry street, but i'm not sure if they are there anymore (my friends dad knows the person who is in charge of the boat and took me there once).

maybe some people here actually do, but this site is actually a site where you make money doing offers and completing surveys.
