>  I have some antique fly bottles of the sort that really are small 
>cream bottles about half pint in size. The story is that TH Morgan 
>had his students raid stoops after milk deliveries to get his first 
>supply of them.

>     As we moved from one building to another, the old fly bottles 
>were slated for the dumpster. I got to thinking that someone out 
>there might enjoy having some around the lab or even on display to 
>show students how flies used to be cultured.

>     Any interest?
>     They are free of course but logistics have to be worked out... I 
>am in the Boston area.

>     Oh and they could make cute holiday presents for a fly lab--they 
>work as little vases or paperclip holders. So if you need a dozen or 
>so -ask!
