Yesterday I went on a walk to the public creek just down the road from my house. It was a very low tide so I decided to walk the shoreline and see what I could find. I ended up finding a couple of cool things from one of multiple sites where I believe there are old dump/wash-up sites.

The finds together:

This is an old Hazel-Atlas glass mustard/preserve bottle that may be as old as the 20s but likely dates somewhere around the 30s-50s:

Part of an old horseshoe if I ever saw one (this would be my first horseshoe partial or complete):

Finally, a metal frame (with a hinge?) marked "THE MILLER HEATER - MADE IN USA" that very likely was once part of an old Victorian-era kerosene heater made by the Edward Miller Co. (manufacturer of lamps and heaters) around the turn of the century give or take a couple decades:

I hope you enjoyed seeing these couple of nice finds and I wish you all the best luck today on this Easter/April Fools' Day!

I like the old heater door. May have had a sheet of mica for a window held in place by the tabs.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too based on the photos of Miller Heaters with similar doors/windows...
