People love souvenirs and stores love to sell them to visitors! We are not too sure of how popular this item might have been used as a souvenir in 1900. But, this very pretty glass bathtub has printed along its side, “Souvenir of Southold, LI NY”. It may have been used as a holder for items like toothpicks or matches.
