Macro Monday - hosted by Lisa
These are close-ups of some bottles in our food co-op bottle wall.
I did a little research on the stamps on the bottles and found the following:
Sand Springs in Tulsa County became one center for the [bottle] industry. As Charles Page developed the town into an industrial center, he induced the owners of several glass factories to locate there. These included in 1913 the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company, which moved to Oklahoma from Chicago in 1913. Kerr-Hubbard and Kelly Company made lamp chimneys, Sand Springs Glass Company also operated there, Alexander H. Kerr & Company made fruit jars, and the Sand Springs Water Bottle Company prospered. By 1955, however, only Kerr Glass Manufacturing and A. H. Kerr Company remained.
ACQUA della MADONNA is an extrasensory experience. Imported from a 2000 year old spring located in romantic Castellamarre di Stabia, south of Naples, the waters have global appeal. The choice of popes, emperors and other dignitaries for centuries.
