[font="Verdana"]I found this little beauty at a dump in San Jose. It says "Hollister Sodaworks Hollister Ca" and has an "H" on the bottom. Any ideas about what year it is and the possible value?

Jim, I am just curious, where did you find that information? I have found lots on the Hawaii Hollister company, but very little on the Hollister, Ca. company. is there a book you use for reference, or do you just use the ol' cranial catalogue?

...and thanks.

Hey Dan,

Who dat Apothecaries?

"... At age six, Don began to take piano lessons from Hollister's only music teacher. As a young boy, Don worked in the family business, the Hollister Soda Works, which supplied Nehi, RC Cola and Falstaff beer to the town's markets, restaurants and bars. After school, he sorted and crated the returned, empty bottles which were then shipped back to the big bottling plants, thereby earning himself a nice bit of pocket money.These funds enabled him to pursue some of his interests and a passion for vintage music and a love of turn-of-the-century antiques topped his list. At age twelve, already a veteran haunter of local flea markets, he purchased a wind-up Victrola and began collecting scores of 78 rpm records featuring jazz bands, vaudevillians and dance orchestras. He found the music exciting and intoxicating, so full of humor, exuberance and variety." From. (http://www.rsjo.com/don.html)

Hi y'all,
Hoping some of you are still around! There was a soda works established in Hollister, Ca. It must have been right after WWI that my grandfather came home to Hollister and started the soda works. Yes, my grandfather, Brunell Lacque. Any bottles for sale I would be interested in. Also ACME. I'll tell you what I know if anyone is interested!
