As some of you may know, I am from Baltimore originally. Though I left in 1975, I still get back often to see my family, work on business projects and of coarse, hit the Annual Baltimore Antique Bottle Show & Sale each year (click here). I also belong to the Baltimore Antique Bottle Club (click here).
When I finally got hooked on bottles in 2002 (read story), I had the pleasure of quickly meeting a fellow named Chris Rowell who is a stand-out member of the Baltimore Club and an experienced digger. He actually sold me one of my favorite bitters which is a perfect example of a killer, pontiled, Boggs, Cottman & Co. German Tonic Bitter (R/H G 28) (click here).
Anyway, I see Chris usually once a year at the Baltimore show but whenever I do, I am always reminded of his digging stories and some of the great bottles he finds.
I posted a few pictures today that Chris posted on Facebook: Bottle Collectors (click here).
