    A Pretty Decent Comeback Dig

    So after my hard lesson learned at the new house site, I decided to walk the creek in search of a new dump to try n' get back on the horse.

    I whacked through some bush by the side of the road and started walking around the large creek bend, and found a new dump within minutes. It was a typical deep trench trickling down into the creek. There was a massive rotting willow stump half way between the top of the dump and the creek, and everything was above the stump. At first I was finding some faded ACL sodas and a bunch of rusty buckets, but I quickly spotted a cracked machine-made case gin and some beautiful fruit jar bases. I messed around in the very middle and at the top for a while, but noticed that a lot of good glass was coming down from the left side of the trench. There were a lot of pieces of broken jugs, mostly early 20th century but then some beautiful earlier pieces. I eyeballed some broken insulators and some early ABM bits, and fragments of a blown emerald green 'not to be taken' poison. So I started hitting that side of the trench and got some instant results. So here's what we've got. Most of these were only a few inches deep:

    First we've got a deep teal Hemingray insulator, I know these are common but it's my first. Then a big boldly embossed aqua Rawleigh's med. Then a 'Glover's Imperial Mange Medicine' from New York, 1920s, I guess it's a scalp and hair treatment, I found a lot of screw tops broken but luckily the older one was intact. Then a couple of blown slicks. Then a 'Kendall's Spavin Treatment for Human Flesh', haha, I have the other 12-sided amber Kendall's but this one I haven't seen. Then a smaller sized Scott's Emulsion. Then one of my favourites of the bunch, a blown, slighty amethyst 'Dr. Low's Pleasant Worm Syrup' from Toronto, for intestinal worms. Then an interesting blown bottle hidden in the back. Then a nice Ed Pinaud toiletry bottle of some sort, Paris, with the original collar and cap. Then an amber med or flask thing that closely resembles a Warner's Safe Cure. And last we have a pretty Great North Western Telegraph Company insulator. Oops, almost forgot the pair of spoons.

    I love the variety of sizes, shapes, and colours coming out of this new trench. The Worm Syrup, telegraph insulator and Mange Medicine are probably my favourites.

    Looking forward to hitting this spot again!

    if you look at the first picture look at the amber med on the far right. You will see a ghostly image. Looks like Ben Franklin. See it? Weird!

    Oh, man! Holy smokes, good eye Goldenplug, that bottle just went from casual to going somewhere on the shelf. Ghost bottle confirmed.

    If your research is correct there should be an older dump nearby or maybe just deeper in the ditch. Great job on finding a new site.

    Thanks cje, I'm thinking there could be some great stuff in there. I'm wishing for a good fruit jar or jug. Since there is so much rotted wood from the dead willow, it's created a layer of loose mushy soil over everything. The plan is to shovel through the huge soft rotting chunks below the stump until I hit the trench bottom, and then work my way around either side of the stump and up the trench and sides. That should keep me busy for a while. Also gonna check out a new house site tomorrow so I've got my fingers crossed for more privy attempts.

    Nice job, I like the insulators. I'm not an insulator guy but we get stoked when we dig them from the privies. Keep at it, older stuff awaits! jgas

    Yeah jgas I've never been an insulator guy either, but what are we gonna do, throw 'em over our shoulders? No way! Instead we take them home and clean them up and admire their beauty and they start to accumulate and take up space while we firmly hold on to the idea that we are most definitely NOT insulator guys...

    Haha

    Hittin' the trench again today!
