Still searching for a place to look for old bottles around Dallas

I love walking creeks and rescuing old bottles that have been discarded. Back in the old days before we had a truck to come by and do it for us, the city would take the community trash to certain areas, mostly along creeks. If anyone recalls such areas, I would love to check it out! On the plus side,we are keeping them from being washed down into our waterways. Thanks a bunch. thumbs up

If you can get into any construction site while they are excavating. After hours of course. The closer to old downtown Dallas the better. So much history gets dug up and hauled off.

I found some great bottles awhile back on Bryan Street. The utility trench probably went thru an old dump behind a house.

Last bottles we found were behind the wall/dam @ Kidd Springs.

I am looking for old glass test tubes & beakers for 8 year old science nerd grandson. Changing bedroom (what he calls "baby" room) & wants old science stuff for his new floor to ceiling shelves.

Let me know if you know any old medical/hospital vacant in Oak Cliff.
