Saturday we determined to set out to find an early Privy. The first place that we went to was a lot that we had been before but this time it had been dozed! It was right across the street from where where we had found the infamous Morning Call Bitteres from Cin. O. But to no avail no luck, so we went a couple of lots down that we'd probed before but after a little probing - Walla. There it was. Even though we weren't able to find it in the past we weren't shy about taking it this time. So, here's how it went.
Trint and Bill finding some stuff !
Bill holding up a nice 1860's whiskey.
After digging down to about 8 feet, Bill kept digging in the sides and discovered a brick liner right next to this one ! Of course after he did we obliged him real nicely to get out and we'd do the rest. So the story goes.....
Trint pulling up a Tubular Pontiled Medicine. Unfortunately the lip was chipped.
Nice and Big !
Trint with another nice bottle. A 2 Lords & Deihl Blob Soda from Memphis.
Buddy with the first of several druggists that we recovered.
And Buddy strikes again with a big ornate Prize Winning Whiskey !
Bill snatches it away saying " Give me that Bottle Bowie "!
Here is a few of the bigger bottles of the day:
Left to right:
Cochrane Belfast Torpedo
16oz. Robinson Druggist Memphis Rect/square
A real seedy Applied top Wine
Vinegar or sauce
A crudely AL Whiskey in a yellow/olive/amber color
A neat Whiskey with a unique disign on the front for the label
A small size (Pint) Whiskey Crude Lip
A tall AL Berry Bottle.
Underneath is the 2 Lords& Deihl Blob fromMemphis
