Lake Maxinkuckee Its Intrigue History & Genealogy Culver, Marshall, Indiana

memorbilia  



David loved to dig up old bottles - etc. - most he claimed came from the Lake View Hotel hills ground most well known as the ''Indian trails'. I am not sure if all these came from there or other a few other choice places he never reveled as his digging spots. he had a long narrow round rod (probably re-bar) that he used for probing. These were all found before 1972.


Beer bottles:



Square Soda Bottles,


Pharmacy Bottles
    Slattery's


Milk Bottles


Miscellaneous


of the beer bottles he had several and just gave them away. He had taken these out of the house from where I had them displayed for fear of me giving them away; claiming he would either sell them or just give them away. After his death I found them stashed in a dirty old musty box in the carport.

The basement coal bin was f ull of boxes of old bottles but nothing of importance - all bore no labels; only fluid onuces or generic bottle marings about the bottle. there were no brand names nor were there any that were embossed. I took each box and went through them - and then threw them into the dumpster - I remember my son grumbling about me tossing them out - but I could not see keeping anything that was not embosed with a product name or had the paper labels missing on them.
