    Ah so there are others with the local bottlers' marked! Never seen the Sask ones before, though considering how rarely I come across prairie bottles that's not surprising. I've actually got one of the Toronto ones though, I wasn't thinking of that one as having a city mark. I've never seen that NuGrape one either.

    By the way just found out that Sun Crest is still sold in some parts of the US. I'd be curious to try it, never seen it down there though. I wonder how it compares to Orange Crush.

    Yes I suppose the Toronto ones are more so stating the headquarters, there must be some local bottler ones from that area in the 7oz size too?...but have not seen any. I like the ones marked Nugrape, I still need one for my collection but it's not really a priority...if I run across one I'm sure it'll come home with me!..lol

    Hey I did not know SunCrest was still available....if it's made with cane sugar it might stack up to Crush!..haha

    Picked up another variation recently, not quite as exciting as the green! It's a neck label variation that I've never seen and it matches the main label.
    Always fun to add variations to the collection, this one has no city markings, it's dated 1955 and is the 10oz size.

    I had no idea Sun Crest was Bottled all over the place! I thought it was only though Bell Bottling here in Winnipeg. So many more bottles to collect now

    Fun facts for Bell Bottling Company:

    Joe Boroditsky began bottling soft drinks at 1087 Selkirk Ave, Wpg, MB in 1918 (There are soda bottles embossed Boroditsky Bros from that period). The Boroditsky Bros. name continued until 1924. After this the company name was changed to the Bell Bottling Company and continued into the 70's. Some of the beverages sold by the Bell Bottling company were: Bromo Cola, Sunnybrook, Wynola, Nu Grape, Sun Crest, Keystone and 2-Way
