Dead Horse Bay Vintage Bottle Catalog

Dead Horse Bay is the site of a former landfill located on the southeastern end of Brooklyn’s Jamaica Bay. Though the landfill has been closed since the 1950’s, trash still washes up along its shores, much of it glass bottles from the first half of the 20th Century. After visiting the bay and collecting bottles, I set about identifying the products they contained and information about their manufacture. I created a catalog that classifies each of the bottles that I found, along with their history and information about the bay.
