    Ontario druggist bottle on ebay ?

    i noticed an odd bottle on ebay , not able to determine if its actually from Ontario Canada or not ? the seller appears to be from Minnesota and didn't list much information about bottle in listing


    the listing says its for a "Jas Ruzicka " prescription druggist , 600No 48th ave Cor Ontario ?


    but whats Cor Ontario ? must be a short form for something , but left confused

    COR apparently means "Central Ontario Railway " but that doesn't really make sense as to the writing on the bottle

    I though it might be from Cornwall Ontario but doesn't appear to be a 48th street and can't think of any other large towns that start with cor

    It means 600 48th avenue, at the corner of Ontario Street. Not sure what city that would be, probably one in the US.

    Definitely not Ontario, Canada. I'm thinking Chicago as the most likely city.

    that would make more sense than it naming a town

    It's Chicago, as James Ruzicka shows up in record of the Illinois Board of Pharmacy. For example:
