Erie Beverages - Chatham Ont soda bottle
there was many interesting bottles at the Toronto bottle show and will gradually post some of the more interest finds .
this bottle is one of the Dominion Glass 1928 generic design that was used in a number of towns and cities in Ontario .
its for Erie Beverages , Chatham Ontario . I knew it existed but hadn't actually seen one before so I'm not sure how uncommon or common it is to find or how long they actually used this bottle for
my book says Erie Beverages operated from 1935-1965 or later in chatham , also the local Coca Cola bottler
That's an interesting one, I've never seen it before either. The logo is quite unusual for a soda company, it looks more like what you'd expect to find on a paint can or something like that.

if they were the coca cola bottler , that might of been there main product produced , I'd assume this bottle is 30's or 40's era , so perhaps they didn't bottle any local product after that
I tried searching around the internet but couldn't find anything on Erie beverages , other than an obituary for someone who worked there in the 50's or 60's but nothing on this bottle or others if they exist
but don't imagine it had a big selling area , mostly would of only been sold in Chatham and surrounding areas so the odds of anyone finding one unless they were digging a dump in that area would be low
