I just did some bottle digging in Northampton Ma, and had the thrill of digging up some fragments of a jug from the store in question. I will be doing more research for my find.

This trade card and four architectural drawings of the Augustus Clarke house in Northampton were given to Historic New England by W.B. Clarke. Images of the drawings are also available in our online collection, but I'm afraid we don't have much additional information.
