1960s glass bottle

This bottle was found underneath our building, an Inter-War building built in 1934.  We were surprised that it was still in one piece and imagined that it was discarded by someone carrying out work on the building.

On the bottom of the bottle are the words, ‘Aerated Water Pty Ltd’.  After carrying out some research we found an image of the original bottle with the text still in place – the date of the bottle is the 1960s.
