Excavation for Downtown Home & Garden’s new underground garage yielded discovery of several old bottles. Most were broken, but one German ceramic mineral water bottle with a handle, circa late 1800s, was intact. Owner Mark Hodesh reports that it came out of an old cistern behind the Mann & Zeeb elevator, which operated there before the Hertlers bought that business out in 1906. [photo] [photo] [photo]
