About 0900 , decided to take a "Break",--looking thru something , trying to find what I was looking for-- came across this 'A Salvage'/Treasure---I was about 8yrs old then--down on the Creek, a bottle dump was on the other side.---

"Soda'--?--"Pop", a "Try Me", Coke, RC---no---something uncommon.

The embossing---:

BIC Soda---Coca Cola Botc Co., bottom -Al.

Salient Points, Become--

The Cap is intact, real steel, and most factual--did it more than once, took an icepick and a hammer and opened up the top.--

Post Script---How many containers are still here after about 60 yrs, in this condition--BTW--It was a local company in my home town--never seen,? I surmise all was shipped to --'The North'--produced Down South where "Soda" was
for baking--;):D

Have to edit--The BIC Soda, after looking at it again (The moldmaker didn't bring the bottom part of the C up enough--it's a G--BIG Soda.

Aj,

Am relieved you are back , safe and sound, and hope you wandered off the usual "Beaten Path", into the side streets, the Shops, the fresh bread and pasteries being baked ---and as you know --there are always a 'Ghost' or two to be seen--

Pretty there, no wonder so many painters , of past---

And thanks for Pics, --I especially noted the stream/pond---;)
