Bob the research you've done is amazing, Always appreciate everyone's input too!...thanks so much fella's. And Thanks to CB for bringing this copycat label to the post!... I mean who would have ever...

Wow well that's cool!..notice anything on this?..lol
All those pictures, a major collector of the brand and no live examples of a bottle and label intact! Hey did you happen to show him the Cross's...

Yes notice he is the fellow with the porcelene sign that shows the bottle, but yet he has no example.
Ahh ha he does have a label!....you almost ate your hat Bob!...lol!
Anyways this is great!

Well they still had a 'Dry' Ga in the 70's...but in a modern label style.
I'm more so of the thought that the bottle was produced, that's just too many different decades of the...

Well for the 1920's, 30's, 40's in the Vancouver area Cross's and Felix probably had the market tied up. Schweppes would have just been an import right? Yes maybe that ad originated in England

Bob yes I was aware of that bottle, you did post it on this thread way back on page 6,7,8 maybe???..lol. I stated then the bottle style seemed to be used from about 1945-55...but I now concur what CB...
11-02-2019, 03:03 PM
That's what i suspected, and that's why the Cross is on the 1958 10oz.
11-02-2019, 12:09 PM
Yes correct, I don't believe Cross's was distributed outside of British Columbia, just the general Vancouver area.

Well in Ontario Maedel's Beverages from Essex - Chatham basically used the Kist bottle with their name on it! I was told Kist went after them for it.

Just to elaborate on the time line for Cross's using that label. The eairliest we know is 1929 as previously mentioned,...it's possible it was even earlier right? I can establish that Cross used that...

Cross's was not established untill 1894...but not really because he was involved with Vancouver Soda Water Works and Calley & Co. prior, Cross's does not show up in the directory until 1899-1900....

Awsome!...thanks Bob, it's been a while since I've looked at any of the Cross stuff in the archives, I had the original ad saved on my computer but when I zoomed to crop it went too fuzzy. ...
10-31-2019, 03:31 PM
I never got a proper zoomed in on that center bottle myself, but I'm assuming its their regular ginger ale... which would be extremely rare to find.
10-31-2019, 03:23 PM
I believe those quarts were used for a while with paper label, probably till 53 when the 'shield' label came out. So how late was that particular bottle used with the 'Country Club Beverages'...
10-31-2019, 01:32 PM
Well those bottles are out of my realm..lol, but they would be suited to post in one of the top four catagories 'Was it before 1900?"... or "Was it after 1900?" ...or "Digging and finding"..."New to...
10-31-2019, 01:14 PM
Bob thanks again!...this refreshes my thoughts now a bit. So that Schweppes label was advertised in Canada pretty early (1914)...I'm sure it was advertised in Vancouver at some point.
I forgot about...
10-30-2019, 11:54 PM
Bob thanks for the input! I had noticed that Ginger Beer bottle on ebay, the Lemon Squash and Orange Squash is something I've never seen!
So unfortunatly none of this information seems to give any...

Greg welcome to the forum!...glad you found this thread, are you from the Vancouver region?..I'm in Mission B.C.
So because your new to collecting and some or most of your bottles are new to you it...

Ok starting with the Dr. Wells. It was bottled by Crown Beverages in Winnipeg...I'm assuming they adopted or borrowed the ACL style from Dr. Wells because latter bottles have a different ACL all...

Hey glad I was able to help out. Nice quart BTW :)
Hey great stuff!...yes as the decades pass the 70's and 80's stuff seems more desirable. I collect a lot of cans and feel the same now about 70's and some 80's stuff,,,EXCITED!!!!...lol!
10-27-2019, 03:45 AM
So there are two of those types, H and S... H- Hamilton, S- Southerland. By at least mid 1918 the hobble skirt bottle was out.

Cool story!...I have not subscribed to the Soda Spectrum for years!
10-25-2019, 12:23 AM
Well that's pretty cool!...but I'm not so certain it's not a rip off. Remember that glass companies supplied generic bottles right?, they did so to with generic labels.
Here are a couple examples...
The label looks solid!...is there less alkiline in that soli? the label is well preserved.
