I am a collector of items from Galena, IL. My main interests
include all types of bottles: beer, soda, dairy, druggist, and whiskey.
I also collect tins from Galena, mainly from the Superior Mfg. Co
or Galena Mfg. Co., but I have run across others not mentioned.
I am also interested in advertising items from Galena as well.
My passion is for breweriana items such as old beer crates, kegs,
trays, glasses, etc.
My wife Connie and I are from Prophetstown, Il.
We were married in Galena approximately 5 years ago.
I had collected items in the past: coins, sports cards
and sports memorabilia and had sold off my collections
and at the time of our marriage, had no collecting interests
at all. I ran across an old Blum's soda bottle and purchased
it as a momento of our marriage. I had never even been to
Galena until we applied for our marriage license. We
enjoy the country surrounding the area and also the town
