The first known spark plug was invented by Edmond Berger, historians say. Unfortunately, Berger failed to patent his spark plug invention, so documented history points to Sir Oliver Lodge of England, whose sons parlayed the “Lodge Igniter” into a profitable company founded in 1903. The next year, Albert Champion, a world renowned bicycle and motorcycle racer who made extra cash by handcrafting spark plugs and selling them to friends, moved from France to Flint, Michigan and founded Champion Ignition Company. Investor drama left Champion jobless, but he soon found himself appointed president of the AC Spark Plug Company formed with backing from Buick Motor Co. FUN FACTS: AC spark  plugs were used in Charles Lindbergh’s & Amelia Earhart’s trans-Atlantic flights & fired the second and third stage rocket engines that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin & Mike Collins to the moon #historycombers #sparkplug #automotivehistory #history #historical #historicalarcheology #auto #automotive #vintagecar #firestone #champion #pinup #vintageadvertising #americana #archaeology #carparts #vintage #midcentury #funfacts #vintageauto #ac

Did some relic hunting in Colorado once and I dug these. An Indian trade ring, a couple of Spencer's and a U.S. Bit Boss Rosette.

I dig these two ink bottles from the same dump this year. Pretty cool that the cork is in the one and it still contains remnants of ink.

Some other bottles I dig this year 2015. The two Florida Water bottles to the right are a Cologne slash scented water bottle possibly from 1890-1917, it's hard to date those.

And here is a Lea & Perrins Worchester Sauce bottle the corks went to. Should be from 1890's to 1910/20. That's old for Alaska.

#historyonthebeach! What a find! This piece of #seaglass came from a Megathlin's Drug Store bottle. Charles Walton Megathlin (1872-1957) was a druggist who opened his pharmacy on Main Street in #Hyannis in 1904. He was not only a #druggist, but also a #FreeMason, a #MerchantMarine, and the first president of the #CapeCodChamberofCommerce! He was a publisher of view-cards (#postcards), he buried 3 wives and had one son and one daughter. Megathlin's #pharmacy was located at what is now called The #GuyerBarn, a community art space sponsored by the #HyArts cultural district of #CapeCod. This piece of #beachglass is 90 to 100 years old!!! #saltlife #historicalarcheology #nerdalert #beachcomb #newengland #oldbottle #antiqueglass #vintage #beachcomber #americanhistory #medicinalbottle #greatfind

Most interesting #beachfind of the day: my first #arrowhead!! It is a #LevannaPoint- a triangular arrowhead with a concave base, frequently made of #quartz.

#historyonthebeach When I found this thick, aqua bottle base I didn't think it had any embossing, but my 6-year-old son insisted it did. So we grabbed a mag-lite and a pencil and sure enough... Around #1900, the words 'Not To Be Sold' were put on many beer bottles, as they were the property of the bottler. Beers were sold with the agreement that the bottles would be returned to the bottler and/or brewery. To discourage people from stealing them, or selling them to other local bottling companies they were embossed 'Never To Be Sold'. Bottles in the mid-west and west coast were usually imported from the east coast-where most glass was made in this era; shipments could take weeks. #seaglass #seaglasm #seaglassporn #beachcomb #beachnerd #saltlife #capecod #ptown I'm not sure, but it appears this could be a piece of a Henry Freiman Bavarian Lager Beer bottle from Staten Island, circa 1902. #vintage #antique #historicalarcheology #ilovebeer
