A Robertson gingerbeer from Mount Forest

This is a close-up look at the 'branding' or 'the transfer' by which I mean the stenciled on impression on face of this 100 year old gingerbeer bottle that the Ace of Spades, Jason Hayder, found in the Meaford Dump.

Of the four examples of A Robertson gingerbeer bottle labels Tim provided in a later email, I like this transfer the best - the rabbit is the star of the label here, and it looks as though he can easily outwit the crossed rifles - indeed it looks as if this bottle represents the adventures of that rabbit escaping those crossed rifles...
