Bottling Works

I am mainly interested in sodas marked with the name of the bottling works on it in a place of prominence. Here are some of my Florida bottles. The Brookville coke has a slice out of the lip, and, as you can see, the bottle on the right from Quincy was glued back together, but it is quite rare (or so I've heard).

    Welcome to the forum. I don't have any Florida bottles, but I do have this "check" that I thought you might be interested in seeing. It is dated 1941 and is from the Monticello, Florida Coca Cola Bottling Co. It is made out to the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in the amout of $494.29. I am "assuming" it was for the purchase of new bottles, but it may have been for something else. It is signed by the plant manager at the time ...   J.S. Kees  (I believe the spelling is correct ???).

    Nice!  The only Florida bottling works one I have is a Munson Bottling Works, third from left.  Munson,  is a tiny community in NW Florida that was a thriving logging community until 1920 or so.

    Sodapopbob -

    It is actually J. S. Keen. I live in "Too Long" Keen's house next to the old bottling plant. It's since been converted to an auto repair shop.
