Dumpdiggers is just amazed at how much digging is happening on the Lakeshore this summer. This hole evidences an active team tunneling about in the wastelands, or what I like to call the 'Golden Triangle' of old Toronto.
Here's the overgrown aftermath of a good hole and the pay dirt was easy to find after a little bit of grass cutting the bottles were just below the surface. Look at the hackers! There's an ACME brand dairy bottle, shoe polish, cosmetics, flasks and a blank umbrella ink, and a nice brown whiskey bottle standing tall among the bottles that were left behind....
The hole itself looks like it went deep, and I know from experience that you have to go way down through a lot of crap in this particular area if you hope to find anything good. Did they find anything good? I wonder who dug this hole?
In 1813, Charles James Mason, of Lane Delph in Staffordshire, introduced "Patent Ironstone China." Mason used a mixture of Cornwall clay, ironstone slag, flint and blue oxide of cobalt to produce a hard, opaque, bluish white pottery that had a smooth, glossy finish after glazing and firing.
Does anyone know anything about ENOBAR? Other than the obvious fact they made Ironstone China in England?
