News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Ashford mineral water bottle
« Reply #1 on: July 19, 2011, 16:12:29 »
I have in my collection this old Mineral water bottle from James of Ashford and wonder if anyone has a picture of his premises at all. The bottle is superbly embossed.. R. James, New rents, Ashford, Genuine superior, Aerated waters. Richard James traded as a beer retailer in 1862 at New rents and was later landlord of the Eight Bells 39 New Rents and probably supplied his mineral waters from here in the glass bottle that I have shown. This bottle would have held something like Lemonade rather than beer. Many thanks.
