I Bet None of You All Have Been to this Bottle Museum Yet!

“I was born in 1926 … I’ve been collecting bottles for 70 years. I have hundreds of Coca-Cola bottles coming from all over the world, especially the United States … the oldest bottle dates back to 1915. I also collect relics of planes or ships … relics of the Second World War that I found buried in the ground. I collect these objects because history is fundamental, and the Second World War was very important in the South Pacific where there were some military bases …”.
