A bit of Thanet bottle





My latest on my something to do list is sorting out about 800 bottles most originating from a dig in Thanet and the remainder from a private collection also dug up in Thanet. Pictured are some of the Ramsgate bottles from Thompson & Wotton, Ozonic and Philpotts. From Margate I have about 60 bottles from MJ Harlow,Barretts and Reeeves . All are dated from the 1890's to early 1920's.The rarest bottle is one of the Ginger Beers by the XL mineral water supply association, which was based at a small works in the Granville Yard,Station Road, Westgate from 1907 to 1916. The are no records of any own brand bottles from the association. Also pictured is the XL ginger beer which by all accounts is a rarity.
