We of course did a little research on the area he lives in and discovered that there was a glass bottle company in the area later in the 1800's. Wouldn't it be great to go back in time and see what your street looked like 100 or so years ago?
We found this much out so far on the glass company - Formed during May 1867, this works existed in Somerville, Massachusetts. Samuel Oakman was president. The company continued under this name until 1871, when the property transferred ownership. After that time, the Boston Bottle Works was listed at the same address as the Massachusetts Glass Company.
Of course everyone can always use a laugh and below is Mike down in the hole he dug. I fear he may keep digging now that he has found treasure and soon his entire back yard will be a giant hole...lol!
