Bottle Dash | Construction, Design Motif | A stucco dash variant utilizing broken glass bottles. Popular in Vancouver during the mid-20th Century. Buildings with bottle dash have bits of glass – most often brown beer, clear milk, green pop and blue milk of magnesia bottles – embedded in their exterior stucco finish instead of the more commonly used rock bits (aka, ‘rock dash’).
