Listed in Gono.Com under embossed S.C. Soda Bottles:NO CITY32SSCL12[font="arial"]13"LIME COLA OF S C"I have never seen a down slant like that except here (Posted by WonkaPete), but different variant of bottle(Right): Maybe only Lime Colas from S.C. had a down slant? Just a guess.
Kari I know zilch about Lime Cola, but if I understand the information on this link properly, it appears that the slanted-script straight-sided bottles were distributed in Georgia as well and not just South Carolina ... ??? http://dublinlaurenscountygeorgia.bl...cola-wars.html
I responded to an offer for a free issue of Soda Spectrum in which Lime Cola was featured.it seems to have first appeared around 1906 in Alabama. There was a deco bottle patent issued for Lime Cola on May 24, 1921. Their ads in 1939 featured an insensitively named mascot, "Sir Limey" who sported a monacle and long white mustache.Bob Hope and Bing Crosby lost their azzes investing in, and promoting Lime Cola in 1947. In a carnival scene in Crosby and Hope's movie, The Road to Rio, a huge display of Lime Cola was featured. The company filed for bankruptcy in 1948.This print ad shows a bottle similar to yours, but the letters slant upwards instead of down. Also, it looks to have had a round paper label too.Thanks Soda Spectrum and J Lee!
