    Flea Market finds

    I hit 2 flea markets today and picked up a few. I got 2 Rhode Island cokes, Providence and Newport. I just need the Woonsocket, RI, Wyanoke, and South County Beverages Cokes to have one of all the RI cokes! Also got some nice crown beers, 1 blob beer, a med, and an awesome apple green bowling pin soda from Turk's Beverage Co of Providence, RI. I've never seen this one before!

    Pics below:

    RE: Flea Market finds

    those are listed as commons, tat woonsocket is going to be a tough one to find.... only hobbleskirt from there is a 1915 and its listed as S+

    put up the others you have... do you have most of the towns? or most of the actual different bottles?

    Here's some better pics of the bowling pin soda. I love this thing, it'll be tough to list it on eBay, lol!

    RE: Flea Market finds

    Bottlenutboy, the RI bottle book only lists a few RI cokes:

    Providence (hobbleskirt)
    Peacedale (hobbleskirt)
    Newport (hobbleskirt)
    Woonsocket (hobbleskirt)
    Woonsocket (ss coke soda water, marked Woonsocket)
    Wyanoke brand (ss coke soda water, marked Woonsocket)
    South County Beverages (ACL coke, marked Peacedale)

    I know there are several variations of each, I'm just trying to get one of each type, not every variation. I have the Providence, Newport and Peacedale hobbleskirts. I'm keeping my eye out for the other ones!

    Edited: I just checked my other ones, the Peacedale is also a Pat D., and I also have a Hartford, CT, and Auburn, ME, both Pat D's.

    I know this is an incredibly old thread but this is the only other resource I've found containing any mention of a WM Albrecht. I too have one of those bottles. Information is few and far between, but I will share what I have.

    A newspaper clipping from 1903 with an advert left of center listing Albrecht selling "Bock Beer."
    https://newspaperarchive.com/boston-...b-13-1903-p-1/

    Here is a 1905 Massachusetts Board of Health document listing him as producing drinks under the brand "W.A. Extra Pale Ale."
    https://books.google.com/books?id=hC...page&q&f=false

    In the same document, he has two convictions for adding fluoride to his ale.
    https://books.google.com/books?id=na...page&q&f=false

    He is listed as attending a brewer's convention in 1907 in this document.
    https://books.google.com/books?id=FI...brecht&f=false

    Next, a document from a 1917 issue of "The American Bottler" where he is selling a wide variety of bottling machinery for cheap.
    https://books.google.com/books?id=kJ...6AEwDXoECAkQAQ

    And finally, here are a few Etsy listings for bottles embossed with the same script.
    https://www.etsy.com/listing/7094277...ton-mass-clear
    https://www.etsy.com/dk-en/listing/6...mass-9-14-inch

    There really isn't much around but we know Albrecht produced a pale ale type beer starting as early as 1903, and going until 1917 when he sold off his equipment.

    While I am 12 years late to this thread, I hope I helped shed some light on this bottle. Best of luck to you.
