Fogarty & Coleman


Company Names, addresses, dates:
  Fogarty & Coleman, Alexandria VA
  Fogarty, James, 171 Franklin Street, Alexandria VA

Notes:
I don't know the years Fogerty & Coleman were in operation, but their bottling establishment was mentioned in 1862 and 1864 issues of the Alexandria gazette. Then James Fogerty was listed on his own in the 1870 and 1871 Alexandria City directories (I don't have access to any other city directories in the surrounding years).

Bottles:

fogarty_01 book # 262
This is a 7" aqua blob top embossed:
front: FOGARTY & COLEMAN / ALEXANDRIA VA.
rear: THIS BOTTLE / IS NEVER SOLD
fogarty_02 book # 263
This is like the bottle above, except the "& COLEMAN" letters are missing. Presumably those letters in the bottle mold were "peened out" with a hammer. It is a badly-cracked, 7" aqua blob top embossed:
front: FOGARTY / ALEXANDRIA VA.
rear: THIS BOTTLE / IS NEVER SOLD
