Best Pit ever dug in Mississippi

Hi Ferdinand!

Just checking in to say hello and to send you some pics from the best pit of Hutch sodas ever dug in Mississippi.

We found a brick lined cistern in Gulfport and when we got into it, it was full of hutch sodas! The list of sodas were amazing. Double Biloxi Barq’s, Gulfport Barq’s, CH Hudson Scranton Miss, F Frank Smith Gulfport, Hattiesburg Bottling Works, just to name a few.

There were over 300 hutch sodas in this four-foot deep cistern. I’ve dug many cisterns and never have I found one like this. It has to be some kind of record. It was a great day and all of us were elated. We will be bringing some of the sodas that we haven’t sold yet to the Daphne Bottle Show on the 25th.

Hope you enjoy the pics! Your Friend,
