At the beginning of the exploitation of nitrate, a solution to the problem of lack of drinking water was the importation of thousands of bottles of mineral water from Belfast Ireland.
These bottles were based rounded, so to be transported and kept stretched (such as shown in
his glass and labels). To protect them from shock brought
a bundle of vegetable fibers or straw.
Today they are called "torpedo bottles" of which there are some
with a pointed base.
