Guelph.C.W Copp (1860s)

A couple of weeks ago (April 1st) my friend had this idea to search for old coins on a property not too far from downtown that had been recently dug up with a backhoe. My friend didn't find any coins that day but he did find an unusual looking old soda bottle that was aqua in colour but because it was broken in 2 pieces he didn't want it and let me have it. I thought it was interesting because it had the city of "Guelph" embossed on it but I didn't know what "C.W" stood for.

The next time I was on the internet I found out that C.W stands for "Canada West" (present day Ontario) and that the bottle is from the 1860s and very rare.

From a reliable source the bottle would have been worth around C$600 if it was intact but because it's broken it might only sell for $25-$50 although another source told me it could sell for more on eBay because of it's historical value but nevertheless I'm keeping the bottle.

I submitted a couple of my photos to Darren who runs a website dedicated to antique Canadian bottles and he merged my photos together with PSP 7 and added my find to his "Digging Stories" section.

I've been back to the same property several times digging around and found an intact Wishing Well soda bottle from the 1950/60s and a large penny from 1903 but no trace of anymore C.W bottles.

NEAT! I think I might do that the next time I'm at my cousins. She lives in a small town called Five Points where there is a large dump site just outside of town on Five Points Pike. I believe it's were the early settlers dumped their trash.

I'd start digging up the old trash pits if I were you, you never know what kind of antiques you may find.

Rockwood Murder House

I shot these last April of the abandoned house that's located up on a hill overlooking a small rest/picnic area and now that the leaves on the trees have all filled in since then you can't even see it from the highway.

About 5 years ago the remains of an unidentified female were actually found on the property.

Brantford, Ontario

It's a shame the city of Brantford couldn't have invested on restoring most of these old buildings rather than tearing down the entire street.

Say bye bye to beautiful 19th early 20th century quality architecture and hello to boring modern cinder blocks and cheap aluminium siding.

Great photos! It's such a shame to see beautiful old buildings being destroyed by short sighted people.
