I am new here and would like to show some signs we dug out of an old town dump in New York this past weekend. My wife and i dig old bar dumps, house dumps, hunting camp dumps etc., for old beer cans and milk bottles. We have doing this for the past 15 years and have dug in over a dozen states. Two years ago we went on a two week digging trip through Alaska.
Anyways we were digging in the western part of the Catskills in New York. we stumbled on a rather large and what appears to be a forgotten old town dump. It is over a steep enbankment and runs almost 300 yards long. In a little over an hour digging we found these four porcelain signs and many milk bottles. the Socony sign is a two sided porclain. the United cigar signs were bolted back to back on an angle iron frame.
does any one have any idea of approximate age? the beer cans in the immediate area were late 40's. but beercans are discarded right after consuming and these signs had to be hanging for years before they were tossed out.
