Codd bottle.jpg

A codd bottle found on hillside on the peak, below where the old british war memorial hospital was located.  Would have contained a fizzy drink and presumably came from the Royal Naval Canteen prior to 1930.

Old bottles

I have a collection of old bottles that I have found over the years on the hillsides around Hong Kong island.  The Watsons bottles were found on the hillside behind the Governor's summer mansion on the Peak (before the slopes were concreted).  The flat bottomed torpedo bottle (Aquarius) was found in Tai Tam.  Can anyone date this one?
