Mobile, AL bottles
OK, here's a 'few' cases of my Mobile (Prichard and Spring Hill) bottles. I've concentrated on Mobile bottles for a long time now. Carre and Pallisers were in business from the 1850s\1860s to the 1930s\1940s so the styles, shapes, and colors of their bottles seem almost endless. If anyone has any Mobile bottles for sale, let me know.
Let's start with a few blobs:

First one is a Russ Beverage.. only one I've ever seen.
A nice New Yorker.. paper label reads 'Palliser Beverage Company, Mobile, AL'...
Now, the 'new' bottles.. all ACLs are marked 'Mobile'... We'll start off with a few variations of Russ - these are fairly early bottles with poor paint so when dug, the labels are almost always gone.. the Barq's and Red Rock are bottled by Russ:
