    Kep I agree. I seen those bottles also, but thought they were too far gone.

    I'm still poking around looking for stuff but not finding much. Although I did go back to this picture from Julian Toulouse's 1939 article about ACL bottles and was curious about the 7up bottle it shows. At a glance it looks like a 2-2-3 seven bubble bottle with an embossed neck. But I'm not sure and thought I'd share it to see what y'all thought about it. If it is a seven bubble bottle, then it will be the first I've seen from 1939. I tried to enhance the second image, but not sure it helps all that much. Maybe someone who sees this has better editing-enhancing skills than I do and can enlarge and/or clean it up enough to make out the bubble placement ...

    Hey Bob, just reading your chat here on bottles and crates from Bakersfield back in the early 40's and I have this 7up bottle from Bakersfield that I've attached dated 1948. It shows the Fresh Up in the The Fresh Up Drink quote as being bolded, italicized, and underlined on the back label. Just curious if you ever seen this before, thanks Bob.Click image for larger version.

    7up lady fan,

    Your Bakersfield, CA bottle should also have the ingredient Lithium listed instead of Lithia that appears on most swimsuit bottles after 1940.
    Unsure of the reasoning behind this change for 1948.
    I have a bottle from New Orleans with same letter styling.

    Thanks for sharing -- Do you have a pic of the front of your bottle? -- The main thing we have been looking for are the 3-1-3 bubbles

    Thanks for responding back Bob. Yeah my Bakersfield bottle has the 2-2-3 format unlike the hard to find 3-1-3 and has the word lithium instead of lithia on the back. I saw hundreds of swimsuit bottles back in the seventies and only saw this Fresh Up variation once which is the Bakersfield bottle that I own. Still think our bold, italicized, underlined bottle that we own is kinda rare. Haven't seen it on ebay or anywhere else since I've started to collect these again.

    That's a nice bottle. I don't have one like that in my collection.

    Found this clock online... Then I noticed the 3-1-3 bubbles so I thought I'd post it here... Now I'm looking for Tom Joyce bottles,
    8 bubble bottles and now 3-1-3 bottles... the collecting never ends! (thank goodness) Ha
