    Re: Every bottle has a story

    Here's the A K E bottle from Page 103 of the pdf document, which I printed/scanned/cropped/saved ... A K E stands for Alexander E Kick

    And here's one of their Hutchinson bottles. The exact date is unknown but possibly circa 1902 when the company was founded. It was described as being embossed on the base with 327 H

    Re: Every bottle has a story

    I don't know why the image of this siphon/seltzer bottle is reversed, but that's the way I found it. But aside from that, notice the use of ... A Kick It's described as being from the late 1800s or early 1900s, which the seller was just guessing about because it could easily be from the 1920s or 1930s. But regardless of the exact date, it no doubt precedes the "A KICK" football soda bottles and is possibly the first use of Alexander Kick's name in such a fashion. http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedi...water-28622708

    Observation / Correction Because the siphon bottle has a painted label/ACL, it's most likely from the 1930s or 1940s. The earliest ACL soda bottle I'm aware of is a Jumbo Cola from 1934.

    I have the exact deco "kick's" bottle I just found at a garage sale. I originally thought it was from the Everett Brewing Co., assuming they started making soda after Prohibition. How do you know this kick's bottle is from 1945? I thought most bottles went away from embossed/raised glass lettering by then? thanks.

    Cool thread!
    I wonder the same questions as you do.
    When I look at a bottle in my collection I wonder who drank it, how many people had their hands on the bottle. I wonder what they were feeling when drinking the beverage.
    I was showing my collection to an uncle years ago and he recollected that when his house was built in 1954 that the day was scorching hot when the chimney guy was bricking the chimney in the attic. Uncle told us he went to the local corner store and bought a bottle of Orange Kist and gave it to the worker. The worker took the bottle and drank it all with out a break then set the bottle at the base of the chinmey in the attic. He says he recalled that moment so clearly. Three days after being told the story ther was a knock on my door and Uncle Shelly stood there dusty and messy hair. At 75 yrs old he crawled into his attic to see if the bottle was still there. He proudly gave it to me to put in my collection. I put a sticker on the bottle so I would not forget the story and put it on display. Uncle Shelly is 98 now and he asks about that bottle every time I see him.
    This is an example of why I collect soda pop bottles.
