Lucky Club / Holiday Bottles / St. Louis, Missouri
Lucky Club Company
Lucky Club Ė Orange Crush Bottling Co.
4657 Swan Avenue (1938-1940)
635-637 Delmonte Way (1948-1959)
St. Louis, Missouri
Lucky Club Bottle Company was started in 1938 and this is one of the first newspaper ads that I could find.
Another early ad from an Illinois newspaper that shows the same bottle as in my collection. A 1938, 7 Ĺ ounce embossed Lucky Club. Well,mine does not say cola and I havenít seen any bottles that do, however that does not mean there isnít one.
Lucky Club was also known as the Lucky Club Ė Orange Crush Bottling Co. in 1939. I found an ad and luckily, I have the bottle to match.
1943 and Lucky Club announces a new bottler in St. Louis for their beverages. I featured Moore Brothers Bottling Co. in a previous thread. I am guessing here that The Lucky Club Co. got out of the bottling business and concentrated strictly on the flavored syrup business. I find no other listings of Lucky Club as a bottler.
I have seen a lot of Lucky Club trade ads as well as ones for Holiday. Holiday was a soda that came in many different flavors. Here are images of trade ads with their matching bottles.
Here are the rest of the Lucky Club bottles in my collection. A 7 oz. aqua glass dated 1947 in the first picture. A 7 oz., 10oz., 12 oz., and 32 oz. all from the mid to late 1940ís in the second picture.
