Whatever has happened to the mud larking ?
The rest of the glass was Victorian green aqua mineral water glass of some thickness and typical 1890's. Two of the bases where embossed and both came from London and from J M Taylor Camberwell. Which I must say is the most common London mineral water company find at Margate from the Victorian era. The broken glass base pictured below is part of a Hamilton design conical soda water bottle. The only part of the lettering visible is the M . Taylor part of the name. Due to the uniform thickness of the glass I would say the bottle was a soda water bottle probably late 1890's.
