I especially like those crown top sodas. Nice haul!
Deja Vu RCO. Your Kel-ola bottle is very similar to my Smile bottle. I don't see vertical lines from the lip to the shoulder on Smile but the rest is almost exact. What do you think?
Looks like Wonder Orange / Rummy was indeed nationwide having franchises in Michigan and Missouri also.
The post you found in the CW was entered by me, I had found a Registration of...
The relationship between American Soda Water and Wonder Orange is that Wonder Orange would be the franchisee and American Soda Water being a franchiser.
I found a local newspaper ad dated 1943 from...
My bottle has a makers mark being a diamond/oval/i which is the Owens Illinois Glass Co.
The bottler was the Royal Crown Bottling Co. of St. Louis.
Most of the painted label on your bottle is gone, RC Cola bottles are somewhat common. Value is, sorry to say 0 dollars.
My bottle is a 1947 version and I only paid a couple dollars for it.
Found an ad for ruf amber ginger ale, maybe they had a root beer too!
Excellent story! I love seeing those old ads, especially when they have bottles pictured in them. Nice assortment of O-C bottles too!

Those swirly curvy embossed lines are cool! When I first looked at it I thought of Big Ben beverages, which has the same style embossing. Here's a pic.

Here's a nifty little ad I found in the June 28, 1865 Atchison Daily Champion newspaper. Super bottle you got there!
That's a nice assortment you got there. Some of the bottles are hard to read so if you could describe them a bit that would be cool! (bottling co, city/ state)
Looks like a shoe polish bottle to me!
