This collection of old bottles came from a bottle pit located
on the south shore of Staten Island near Sharrotts Road in the
Charleston area. I went with my Dad in the early 70's after
having seen it with some school friends and we dug out
what we could find that wasn't broken. These bottles then had
to be hauled out in backpacks, taken home and cleaned.

They remained boxed up as my Mom always took good care
of collectables. A lot of these bottles date back to the 1920's.
Many only used corks to cap them. A lot of old breweries, and
some proprietary bottles from the "Tottenville" pharmacy.

I'm open to reasonable offers, but this ain't a yard sale. Aside from
being antiques they hold a lot of sentimental value for me. That being
said I'd love to find someone who really appreciates these little glass
windows into the past.

Some names: Tottenville Pharmacy, Sheffield Dairy, Hadkins Bottling company,
OK Bottling company, Rubsam + Horrmann R+H Brewing company S.I.N.Y.
Pride of the Farm Tomato Catsup, RubiFoam for teeth + J.F. Bedells Drug Store Tottenville.
