Antique Bottles on Display at the Logansport Branch Library

Article Image Alt Text
Stop by the Logansport Branch Library and see David Toney’s vast display of antique bottles. Mr. Toney is no stranger to antiques. He and his wife, Angela, were previous owners of a local antique store. Their collection started when they first got married over 23 years ago, although his collection of bottles began when he was a child. “It was the thing to do back then, as the soda bottles could be turned in for a refund. That was before most things went to plastic packaging and we became a throw away society,” Mrs. Toney commented.
