Default neat 1890's Montana drug store bottle!

Thought I'd post this pic, on the same trip to North Dakota and back to Western Montana, and when we picked up that Corning Pyrex power insulator, on the drive out my wife and I found a small household dump near Miles City Montana. We found a few food bottles, about a dozen old rusted horseshoes, some plain beer bottles, a Dr. Price's Flavoring Extracts bottle, and this neat medicine bottle!

Yes! Nice druggist and a local Montana too. Looks like 1898-1910 era. Probably made by Whitall-Tatum, who, incidently, also made insulators later on.
