    Fun fact about that bottle, the label design is a generic design used by several different unrelated bottlers. It seems that it's just a design you could order from the glassmaker. Generic bottle...

    That info is great, thank you! That explains why the earliest Canadian bottles anyone has been able to find have been the ACL ones. I'm quite surprised that they bothered with returning bottles...

    My guess is some sort of toiletry product, but I'm really not sure. I've never seen one like that before, but I've seen the crinkly pattern used on hair product bottles before.

    I don't think that's a date code, the bottle looks too early for 1968 to me. I'd guess it dates to the 30s, but no clue what the cap said. If you want to find out, soaking the cap in lemon juice...

    That's a nice BC 8-bubble! There definitely aren't too many of those floating around, and yours is one of the better condition ones that I've seen. I have no idea why the Vancouver plant used that...

    I don't remember coming across many of any size of Buchanan's bottle before, apart from some later ABM ones. I doubt it'll be that rare considering how big the company was, but since BC has some of...

    Those are nice fruit jars! Not ones I've ever come across before.

    Wow, an American blob top bowling pin bottle! That's not something I've ever seen before. I'm guessing that it's some sort of soda, but Lactone is a pretty weird name for one. Can't help you on...

    Nice find! I certainly doubt it's common, not too many paper labels will have survived that long after all. I don't think I've seen the bottle without a label before either.

    For me it's Vick's first, then Milk of Magnesia, then Bromos. The Bromos aren't nearly as common up here, although it's not like they're rare or anything.

    I've never heard of Wheaton Village, the Wheaton bottles that I've seen have only been embossed with Wheaton. It's definitely a repro I'm afraid, they made loads of them back when bottle collecting...

    If you copy and paste it into your browser the link works, not sure why it's not showing up as active on the site.

    I believe that's a reproduction from the 1970s, I'm afraid. Wheaton put these out in different colours.

    It's better to try and make it look new again, but it's also really hard without putting it through a tumbling machine, which costs a fair bit if you don't have your own. That hazy appearance is...

    Oh yeah that's a nice ACL, I can see why it was expensive. Looks like a pretty early one too, late 30s or early 40s would be my guess, so right from the earliest days of the company.

    Yes you're correct, I have no knowledge of any Canadian-produced Schweppes bottles of any type predating the ACL era. It's very possible that Schweppes was only available in imported bottles from...

    Thought this was interesting too, a similar label was being used for cans in the 70s http://www.canmuseum.com/Detail.aspx?CanID=39347&Member=

    I have one of those tonic water caps. They were used on the Canadian ACL bottles, which is the earliest example I know of where Schweppes was bottled, rather than simply sold, in Canada. It doesn't...

    I suspect it says "By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen" in the first two lines. The words are roughly the right length and shape. I would be extremely surprised if these bottles weren't sold in...

    I dug a dump a while back which was packed with this style of bottle (embossed) and was mixed in with license plates from the mid-1930s. None of them had date codes on the bottom but I'd be...

    I don't have that one in my collection and I've never seen one in person that I can remember, but I am aware that it exists. I think it's one of the harder to find Cross ACLs. Not sure where it...

    Wow those are fantastic! I've never seen the Olive McGlaughlin or either of the round bottoms. I had no idea Charles Wilson was ever based out of Montreal.

    Either scenario is definitely possible. I'm pretty certain that copying the entire label design but changing the words and pictures wouldn't be allowed under copyright law today, but I have no idea...
