Welcome to the Bottle Dump
Hello, and welcome to the Bottle Dump
My old web site had been in place for some time so I decided to give it a make-over. This is my new web site. The internet is now faster and bandwidths are bigger. As a result of this I have gone for bigger, better photos wherever possible.
The Bottle Dump web site is for the digger and collector of antique bottles and jars. As you can see, the Bottle Dump is split into several sections, each one covering a different bottle or container type. I have tried to cover a wide variety of items, and will add more as time, and availability of photographs, permit.
Should you wish to contact me for information / identification of your finds my contact details are -
Feel free to send me any photographs you may have of your favourite finds. I will add them to the Bottle Dump, and will always include your name for credits.

Website Technical Info
Purely for reference : My web site is tested with a monitor set at 1920 x 1080. I assemble the website using DreamWeaver on 2x 28 inch monitors both set at 1920 x 1080.
All my web pages have a fixed width of 1020 pixels. This means that the pages will view at 1020 pixels wide on a 4:3 ratio (square) monitor and wide screen monitors will show a coloured band to each side of the web page. This is to prevent the pages from "stretching" sideways on widescreen monitors.
Fingers crossed !!
