|Vintage Whistle Bottle (from Jack Tiller Collection)|
"As young kids, we would play by the Black River, and we would find these old bottles around. I began collecting them and have had some of these for many years." Mr. Tiller also mentioned that he has many dairy bottles and pharmacy bottles from Lorain.
Incidentally, the Whistle soda pop bottle in his collection is not from the Lorain Whistle Bottling Company (which had become the Forrest Distributing Company in the mid-1930's). It's from the Franklin Bottling & Distributing Corp.
