I love it when people find objects long since hidden in attics or behind walls. I wonder if the teen just listened to it and forgot where it went...teens have a habit of that. Love the old bottles and I was immediately thinking alcohol since cough syrup oftemwas high in alcohol especially in those days.

Lots of people collect those old bottles. I think they are interesting. Kirk is a mantle piece item that only you and Mrs. C can appreciate, I love things like that.

I think if I were hiding a stash, I'd want it in quantities larger than that! I guess that size would be good to keep in my handbag for a quick nip. :) I've got a large stack of 45s in a cabinet and occasionally listen to one. And Kirk would be welcome on my fridge.

CJ and you are quite close... so why would he claim you're a Trekkie? Are you a science fiction fan?

perhaps those little wee bottles contained laudanum? I think every house has quirky items- and sometimes we don't even see them as quirky! Cheers!

Wow, cool items all, but I'd have lost my mind finding cobalt bottles......uh addition here. At our old house we were sure the previous kids had hung out in the attic....lots of teen age litter. Houses with histories are fun.

There's a magnet my brother would put on his fridge. I wonder what proof that cough syrup is by now? It would probably be able to get an elephant tipsy.

Fascinating finds! The little blue bottle could be the seed of an interesting short story. (That's the sort of "starter" I'd use in writing classes.) I love the juxtaposition of Capt. Kirk and the beautiful old clock. The photo looks like a scene from Land of the Giants or Honey I Shrunk the Enterprise!

Those bottles remind so of my mother who collected blue glass and displayed them in a window as you entered her house. Just the right size for her and the window's small panes of glass...

That is one very cool refrigerator magnet ... if you like that sort of thing. Our nephew and his wife discovered one of their cats liked to hide in the cellar ceiling. When they pulled her out, they discovered the cat had been keeping company with a stash of sex toys left by the former owner. Be grateful for those antique bottles!

I love those claw-footed tubs. I'd have bought a bigger water heater. My apt bathroom is too small but I was determined to have a bath tub. I could barely fit in it 15 yrs ago when I was 50 lbs lighter. Now it's like a hippo in a birdbath...

We found a few things in the attic when we moved here, but nothing worth mentioning, or even keeping.

Have you ever researched to see what some of those items might be worth? You never know. We have a huge jacuzzi tub that takes way too much water, but we are on a well, so do indulge and will continue until we are too old to get in and out.

I'm surprised you haven't taken the bottles to an antique store to determine their value, if any.

Catalyst is right; they might be worth something!!

That is a cool magnet--though I was a Spock fan. Bet Shatner would buy that from you. I loved that song. Now I will probably head for Amazon to download it. Gee thanks.

Some of the old houses with attics contain some interesting object. I guess few people visit attics.

Am I the only one who loves it that "Up On the Roof" was found up near the roof?

I'm sure those bottles could have contained something far more sinister! Did anyone ever meet an untimely death in that house? That might explain why they were hidden :)

What neat items to have found! I'm wondering if the record might have just slipped out of a box when the previous owners were moving it down from the attic in a hurry or something. Your son might be just needling you, you know :)

I was just reading about old bottles. "They" say the cobalt ones are more valuable than clear. Hopefully they will bring you some money!

The Drifters--great East Coast beach music! Nice finds.

Was he over sexed, I had no idea. Nice placement.

Those bottles look quite interesting! What did you do with them - keep them? Or did you get rid of them? I've only lived in new(er) houses, so no interesting finds or stories.
