When it comes to antique bottle collecting, Coastal Living fans are a resourceful lot. Some scour miles of beaches, others dream of finding a sunken ship. But Will Cameron and Ed Cushing take a more direct route. They dry-suit scuba dive in the chilly waters of Alaska! Residents of Ketchikan, Alaska, Will and Ed frequently dive the Pacific in depths up to 100’, searching for collectable jugs, bottles, and apothecary jars. Concentrating on ‘finds’ at least 80 years old, the pair have collected scores of glass, china and stoneware pieces dating between 1880 and 1930. Ships from all over the world have been visiting the ocean side city of Ketchikan (Alaska’s “First City”) for well over 100 years. And for many decades visitors and residents alike thought nothing of depositing unusual and collectable objects directly into the ocean. The result? A treasure trove for intrepid coastal divers like Will and Ed.
