    there mostly 60's era .

    I have a Pampa cola that I found in a mixed box I bought a couple years ago , believe when I researched it that its from Montreal and 60's/70's era

    the Pure Spring was based in Ottawa although it was being sold in other parts of Canada , not sure how popular it would of been out east . I think that bottle is from the 60's


    the 4th bottle in that picture on far right is a " tab " diet cola bottle , it was made by coca cola for the diet market , I've found a few of them here , its also 60's era

    the frostie root beer is also late 50's or early 60's . is there a city on back ? my book says they were also based in Ottawa

    the amber bottle likely was for some sort of ginger ale or ginger beer but without a label , next to impossible to say who its for


    the " sussex " is from Sussex New Brunswick , it was a major bottler out east , not sure when they used that exact bottle but it also be from 50's-60's era

    the 3rd bottle is for " crush " its likely from 60's era , very common bottle as Crush was such a large brand


    the Morris Beverages is a local bottle as its from Dartmouth NS , not sure of there exact dates of operation as my NS book does not list acl bottles , but I'd guess 50's / 60's era . might clean up a little bit more


    I do a lot of swimming for bottles here during the summer , but often painted bottles after being under water for so long they start to lose there paint , not sure what salt water does to them but I'd imagine it damage them over time

    here is a picture of the Pampa cola I found a couple years ago , although it was based in Montreal , I'd assume it was being sold in other parts of Canada , although not sure how popular of a brand it would of been back then

    Thanks, for the information!. We find most of these under the main bridges that go across the harbour. My guess is they were thrown over by workers. they are in 80-100ft of water. we are heading out tonight for another dive, ill post if I find any

    I'm sure there is lots of bottles there , there is usually bottles near docks or places people went to . they could of been tossed by people driving over the bridge or walking across it too . being a busy harbour , lots of boats would of passed thru

    not sure what the bottom is like there but older bottles are likely harder to find and well hidden in the sand / debris

    Age of this Mountain Dew bottle?

    Just curious how old this embossed Mountain Dew bottle might be?

    You'll reach more people by starting your own thread in the sodas section, but my guess is that it's from 1980. If not, it's from around that era. It's an unusual design, is it from the US?
