Millville, New Jersey - Glass bottles. T. C. Wheaton Co. A gaffer finishing a wide mouthed bottle. The man on the right takes the bottle from the blower on a rod and puts it on a gas flame, which may be seen behind the corrugated tin. When the neck of the bottle is re-heated to sufficient temperature, the gaffer on the left of this picture takes it over the fire and shapes it with iron tools by twirling it back and forth. The snapping-up boy then takes it over to be annealed.
