Before our house was built in about '72' there was a very old house in it's place. There was also the old original well in the back yard it was actually quite dangerous as the previous owners had only lain corrugated iron over the top of it. Not quite good enough for my inquisitive children who found this before I did. Actually they found it within the first hour, they came running towards me saying "Mummy all this waters bubbling out of the ground like a volcano" Oh great not only have I bought a house off a drug addict complete with syringes left in the house & drugs buried in the garden. Looks like I have a house on a volcanic site!!
No joke. We laugh about it now but we didn't live in the house for three months till it was completely cleaned & restored.
Anyway back to the bottle, I quite often find old china, old horse shoes, steel thing a majigs (don't know what they are??) etc but they are usually broken this was in such good condition it only needed the worms/soil washed out of it.
The writing on it says-
THIS BOTTLE ALWAYS REMAINS
THE PROPERTY OF
THE SHELDON DRUG CO PTY LTD
Okay so what I want to know is if anyone can shed some light on it
Age?? Wouldn't it be funny if it was only 10yo
What was in it?? Probably drugs knowing my garden's history
About the company??
And lastly if you think it's a fantastic archaeological find and want to make me a millionaire before the years out. Please leave a comment on the bottom of this post.
