    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...

    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...

    The little bottles are definitely British based off of the coin, the miniature I have no idea about. I've still never seen a Canadian-made Schweppes bottle predating the ACL era, so I'm curious...

    Nice finds! Is that blue one a local druggist? It doesn't look like one but I also don't see many US bottles that say "Chemists", especially from small towns. It's got a very British look to it.

    Oh that's a good question about Felix, it does seem odd that a local bottler would be granted rights to use a pretty iconic cartoon character doesn't it?

    Yeah I haven't found a cone top yet either. I suspect that any left in good condition will be in dumps where they were able to be kept dry. I've found other painted label cans from that era so I...
