    haven't seen that version of a whistle acl bottle before either , but I don't have any whistle bottles and haven't found any in the wild before either ,

    which is odd as you'd think they'd be fairly common to find , even if they weren't bottled locally , think a tourist would of brought one here and left it in the lake or something

    Great sign!....nice condition too, seen a few online that are pretty beat up with cracks and chips.

    This bottle is closely related to the Whistle brand in Vancouver BC as is came from the same bottler stamped on the side of my Whistle crate (Cross & Co.) The bottle was made by Illinois glass for Cross & Co., I always wondered why they chose a US supplier but I guess the proximity had to do with it being on the west coast.

    Illinois-Pacific Glass Corp., Los Angeles and San Francisco (1926-1930)....note it has the 'Priof' top.... it's the only (made for Canadian market) Priof that I have. Incidentally my Art Deco Whistle dated 1928 was from the same glass company.

    Sooner or later I would think you'd find an Art Deco style or at least one of the straight sides.
