What is This?

I have a skill-testing question for you... The first person to comment on this post with the correct answer wins a prize!

We've been working hard on the restoration of the Little Blue House, built in 1898 and located in Atlin, British Columbia, Canada.

Clue #1: As stated above, the LBH is located in Atlin, BC.

Clue #2: We are excavating underneath the house, in preparation for the repair of the foundation. My husband found this object in the earth underneath the LBH.

I'll check back soon to see if anyone can guess what this object is... What is this?

  1. Hard to tell- melted glass maybe?

    1. Hi Colleen! You are correct! It is indeed melted glass. We've discovered heaps of broken glass, some of it melted, underneath the house. We are wondering if there was a liquor store there before the house was moved to its current location... One of the great fires that destroyed part of Atlin in the early part of the 20th century is likely the culprit. A prize will be coming your way! Thanks, JT
