Object: John Wyeth & Bro. medicine bottle.

This old antique bottle was found at the bottom of the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands area in Ontario on a scuba diving excursion back in 1998. I discovered it will scrounging the river bed around one of the islands. Way back in the day people who lived and cottaged on the islands use to throw their trash into the river and this is the kind of things waiting to be discovered while scuba diving in the area.

This John Wyeth & Bro. medicine bottle currently resides in our home library on the top of a book shelf. It is a daily reminder for me of my many adventures under water.
