I collect antique embossed(not painted label) soda bottles with addresses from towns in what I call Deep East Texas. This is the portion of the Piney Woods area of Texas which lies about fifty miles either side of a line from Beaumont, Texas to Logansport, Louisiana. The soda bottles can be Hutchinson Blob-Tops, and Straight-Sides marked with the names of these towns. I also keep Art Deco and Brand Name bottles from some of the towns in East Texas.
Some of the town names in Texas are: Carthage, Center, San Augustine, Brookeland, Jasper, Newton, Sour Lake, Woodville, Livingston, Henderson, Nacogdoches, Lufkin, Corrigan, Garrison, Beaumont, Port Arthur, Colmesneil, Orange, Saratoga, and Kirbyville.
Please let me know if you have a bottle or information about the hobby I might need, even if it is not for sale. Also, I am glad to pass on any knowledge or information I might have. An email link is provided above and below on this page.
