These two clear glass bottles were recovered during excavations at the Union Pacific Railroad Depot in Lawrence, Kansas. The smaller bottle may have held medicine or pharmaceuticals, while the larger may have once held shoe polish. This site served not only as a depot, but also had dwellings, a meat market, a saloon, a possible boarding house or hotel, a grain elevator and other commercial buildings located within the project area excavated in 1995 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists.

Date: 1869-1950
