Description:
Photo of a blue bottle created for use at Richard Snow's bakery and confectionery store in Port Whitby. It most likely contained either a flavored beer or flavored soda water which he produced in addition to baked goods. The bottle was probably manufactured at the Lockport Glass Company in New York as Canada did not have a productive glass company at this time. Marked Whitby, Canada West which dates the bottle to around 1863. One of Canada's best examples of this type of glassware.
