Here's the loot that I hauled home from Bottle Beach last week. It took a little scrubbing to get the algae out of a few, but for the most part I was amazed that the bottles were largely free of chips and seaweed. They've been clanking around in the water for half a decade, how is it possible that they're still intact?
Lots of them have patent numbers on the bottom or text on the sides (St.Jospeh's Aspirin, Bayer Aspirin), and I've been having a lot of fun dating and identifying particular brands. From hair tonic to an additive to make paint stink less, there sure is a lot of interesting antiquity washing up on this beach every week. I highly recommend checking it out for yourself.
