Hey everyone, allperrys here. My family on my mother's side manufactured, created, and bottled soda and other drinks in New Rochelle, NY for over a half a century until 1996, when my Grandfather retired and dismantled the company. The family owned "Rochelle Club Beverage Corporation" and swore by glass bottles.
My Grandfather is now 93 years old and I am collecting and archiving any soda labels his company created. Unfortunately, bottles are pretty hard to come by and on this post I have a half-gallon bottle from the company. A priceless family heirloom.
I'm quite happy to be apart of this forum now where I can share a passion for bottles/labels with other people around the globe and find refuge in the saddness that comes with buying my family history on line. Indeed, for the past hour I have been buying my Rochelle Club genuine labels online from ebay and other stores.
Welcome to the site. I love the old one half gallon bottles like that. It is sad you have to buy the family history back, however at least Ebay lets you be able to find it. Otherwise it would be scattered in unknown places.
Beautiful bottle!!! It's great that you're preserving family history!!!! I'm all for it and do it myself!!! (Though with other things than bottles) Keep it up, all the best for you! If I ever come upon a Rochelle Club bottle or anything from your company, you can have it FREE!! Just nice to know you're doing this!!
Hello and welcome, Nice looking bottle, You should rename or make a post with the Title being Rochelle Club , Rochelle Club Beverage or variant. someone here may have one of you grandfathers bottles, if I had one I would give it to you. good luck in your bottle history quest.
I've heard of North Star and have seen that red and white one before, they aren't common in the south of the province but I don't know how many are up your way. I really like the Players sign, shame...
