The following bottles were discovered in a closed off craw space in my home about five years. Three years Ago when we remoldeled I was able to retrieve them, they have since been stored the same very old wooden crate that i found them. I've finally gotton around to research some and believe the era of these bottles are from 1930's - 1940's. They are Soda, Water and Beer Beverage bottles all from Brooklyn, New York, New York City and one from Lynbrook, Long Island, also one bottle is unmarked with just a symbol. Another bottle say Thos E. Morrissey on it so i wonder if that what was in the bottle. They all have raised embossed names and or logo's. They are as follows:

I think their in pretty good condition considering how old. They just need a cleaning, now how to display them? My husband says TGIF, I think a museum.
