Welcome to Ontario Dairies

Ontario Dairies is a ambitious project that will need the assistance of dairy collectors and novices from Ontario and beyond. Most of us have referred to the Ontario Dairy & Creamery List by Glen Phillips to locate and date our bottle finds. This project is the next step and will allow everyone to view, compare and share their bottles. The goal is to get at least one image for every dairy that operated in Ontario from around 1900 onward. I am looking for any dairy images including; bottles, caps, advertising, go-withs, people, dairy operations etc. If you are interested in contributing your images please contact me at the email below.

Contributing Your Images

I am looking for good quality photographs / scans. Please make sure that the photographs / scans are yours that your have taken yourself. If you have saved Ebay images, copies of copyrighted material or any web images from other sites, please do not submit them. The larger the image or file, the better and easier it is to work with. Please photograph or scan items individually as this also saves me time (less time = more updates) and allows for a better end result. It is best to send me a couple of samples to confirm quality and size prior to sending multiple images. All images you contribute remain your property and will not be used for any other purpose without your prior consent. One last thing, please be patient. Once you have sent me your images I will usually post some right away. The rest I will post over a period of time that depending on how many photos you have sent. At any time I have many contributors and try my best to evenly distribute the posting of everyone's images. If you have sent a substantial amount of images, don't worry I will eventually get to posting all your images. Lastly, thanks for your time and effort improving Ontario Dairies.

I started collecting in the early 1990's finding 1930's-60's sodas and milks. I have always had a preference for embossed milk bottles probably because I could dig them quite easily. I know there are many collectors who prefer the pyro (ACL, silk-screened) bottles and I can see the reasons why. The great graphics, war slogans, various colours make them wonderful to collect especially when you have a whole wall of them displayed. Then you have all the great caps, calendars, and other go-withs which just add so much more to a collection. It is a great learning experience for me to do this project and I will continue to do my best in presenting great images from collections across the country.
