    The spout on the can doesn’t look like the right shape for “oil”. Anyone else have an idea what “ile” is supposed to mean?

    The can is for kerosene “ile” The bulge at the top of the spout is a potato used as a makeshift stopper.

    Depending on the area you lived in in 1906, it may have been whale oil or coal oil. Or just generic “lantern” oil.
