Charles E. Tippett - The Bottles and the Man

Event Type: Adult Program
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 11/4/2018
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
Description:
 Historian Edward Ng will recount the fascinating story of how Charles Tippett came to Chester and created a successful business at the turn of the century (1888-1923). As reflected in his bottles, the story recounts his fascinating life in Chester brewer, saloon keeper, tax assessor, grand juror, police-judge, and arguably alleged arsonist.

The program will feature a selection Tippett bottles from the CHS archives, highlighting the markings and manufacturing techniques that differentiate the bottles over the years they were produced. Since Tippett Bottles were meant to be reused, they were robustly made. Many have survived the last hundred years and are a memorable keepsake of that era.

Old bottle enthusiasts and collectors are encouraged to participate by sharing their knowledge of Tippett, his bottles, and related information. Light refreshments reminiscent of flavors of drinks Mr. Tippett bottled, ginger ale, root beer, and lemon and strawberry soda will be served (sorry, no "porter or lager beer").
