    ALL OF MY PICS ARE COMING UP SIDEWAYS.....I have seen many bengal bluing bottles but none like this one, so having trouble finding a date. I don't mean dinner and a show, but the date the bottle may have been made. Also i am wondering if this bluing is the stuff they use on guns?

      If the seams stop before the mouth on most American utility glass bottles like this, it's probably from before 1920.
      Bluing is what was used to whiten clothes before bleach was invented. It was literally blue in colour but very little was used in wash. Bluing is still around today though it is hard to find.

      Are you using a home computer to post your photos? Posting from a mobile device will cause sideways and upside down photos. Also make your photos longer in the horizontal than the vertical plane. IE don't do the lengthwise photos. Hopefully that helps.
