Web Site Summary and Leave a Comment

Today, activity associated with Long Island’s south shore bays is pretty much limited to recreational boating and fishing, but years ago in addition to recreation, they provided a way of life for many, including clammers, oysterman, fisherman, farmers and hotel operators to name a few. These bottles provide some insight into their basic necessities; what they ate, drank and needed to live, work and relax on a daily basis. Just as importantly, each bottle’s story provides insight into life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I hope this web site does these bottles justice and narrates a little bit of history that might not otherwise have been preserved.

Hope you enjoyed the web site! Feel free to leave a comment by clicking the icon on the left and remember…
