    1910s Waiters With Bottles on Advertising Tray

    Most of the paper items in the box were from the 1910s. I'm guessing these were relatives or friends, as everyone in all photos except one was African American.
    It appears that the labels say Pale Dry Ginger Ale?

    Can anything further be understood from the photo? Sadly, albeit words can be seen, the trays are unintelligible.

    Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    The bottles that we can see the partial labels are definitely Canada Dry; attached is a picture of a similar one...

    I was going to say the bottles did look similar to the Canada dry bottles I had seen before , it might of been sold in the states as Michigan rate beside Canada or the picture could be from Windsor area or somewhere else in Ontario , there was a lot of places here popular with American tourists

    Canada Dry was being sold in the US quite early on, I believe it got quite popular down there during Prohibition.
