A Visit to York

The Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors is set to hold its 2008 Expo in York, Pennsylvania and I could not resist making the five hour drive north. This will be my first Expo, although I have been collecting bottles from 30 years. This year, however, the show was in driving range and I decided it should not be missed. Also, some of the collectors who participated in the Great Warner’s Safe Cure Exhibit  in 2001 will be here, so its a reunion of sorts. Not sure how many Warner’s Safe Cures are lurking about, be I will keeps my eyes peeled.

I have brought my digital camera along and will make sure to post some photos of the Expo. York, Pennsylvania, also known as the White Rose City, is a picturesque town nestled in South Central Pennsylavania. It dates back prior to the Revolutionary War and served as the temporary capital of the Continental Congress giving it a claim to being the first capital of the United States. I’ll let the historians debate that, I’m here in search of Warner’s and the Expo begins tomorrow, so stay tuned.

  1. I just came across this piece about Andy Lang and his Warner’s at the Expo in York. I am a little disturbed that you used two pictures of my sale table but failed to mention who they belonged to.

    • Russell,

      Sorry for the omission. It was inadvertent. Let me know which of the pictures were of your table and I am happy to update the post to include you.
