Nice going Glen! I've seen lots of pieces but intact ones are few and far.

Was dithering on whether to dive today, it being rainy and mucky out. Glad I went!

Found a German (?) stoneware mineral water jug. 1880's? The first one I've seen come out of the bay here. Wow!

Bottle diving! I did 3000 dives before I ever picked up a bottle. I burned through miles of velvia 50 film and identifies all those undersea critters.....then i found my first Hutchison blob top.. such a fun andventure collecting junk from the past!! If you want to dive in Tacoma some Wednesday night, let me show you my secret spots..

From Monday's dive (#799!)

Two Washington Territory medicine bottles in perfect condition. "N.D. Hill & Sons Druggists Port Townsend, W.T."

Washington became a state in 1889, so these have been sitting on the ocean bottom since before then. Waiting for me!

Well this is fun! Found in Townsend Bay this past weekend...

Franklin Hart Remedy Co, New York. Circa 1880, "FLORAPLEXION cures Dyspepsia Liver Complaint and Consumption". Wow! A panacea.

Found a rounded-bottom blob-top in Townsend Bay this morning. Nice color, and a frosted beach glass look.

Not sure yet whether I will leave the barnacles on or not.

I almost left this one but the irregular bottom made me keep it and it was fun looking it up. Pre-Prohibition whiskey bottle, the Bonnie Brothers were born in the mid-1800's. More than you ever want to know about there business here:
