Here is a reprint from a previous edition of The Collectors Newsletter:

We live in a Victorian home in a historic district called St. Annes Hill in Dayton, Ohio. A few years ago we had some serious sewer problems. As we discovered a section of the original sewer pipe had collapsed. What was worse it was under the garage with a concrete floor. After much back breaking excavating we had a hole in the garage about 8 feet long, 4 feet wide and 7 feet deep. While digging we keep finding bottles, rusted cans and early Edison light bulbs... all intact! After the pipe was repaired I decided to do a little more digging. Mind you all of this was 7 feet down. I found broken flow blue cups, dishes, rusted iron toys, hinges, 38 different bottles including early Dayton breweries, pharmacies and a Pluto water bottle. But the best was an early sponge ware bowl that just had a crack. As you can guess it was the original trash burn pile from our home. I finally had to be pulled out of the hole so it could be filled in. Every so often I look at the floor of the garage and want to dig it back up again... I just know there is something wonderful waiting! Jim in Dayton, Ohio

Here's a vintage recipe for "Ritz Mock Apple Pie":

Ingredients:
Pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie
36 RITZ Crackers, coarsely broken (about 1-3/4 cups crumbs)
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. cream of tartar
Grated peel of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preparation:
PREHEAT oven to 425F. Roll out half of the pastry and place in 9-inch pie
plate. Place cracker crumbs in crust; set aside.
MIX sugar and cream of tartar in medium saucepan. Gradually stir in 1-3/4
cups water until well blended. Bring to boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low;
simmer 15 minutes. Add lemon peel and juice; cool. Pour syrup over cracker
crumbs. Dot with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll out remaining pastry;
place over pie. Trim; seal and flute edges. Slit top crust to allow steam to
