I’m working on my Houston family Tree and discovered in newspaper articles that in Freeland Pennsylvania there was a Houston Brothers Bottling Co. Does anyone know any information?
I found a bottle online but no info.
Peter Houston (1874-1910) worked for the bottler Peter Timony of Freeland Pennsylvania 1893.
1896 works for P Mackin bottler in Mcadoo Pa.
1897 Peter Houston shot while working for a bottler in Mcadoo Pa.
1907 Peter Houston injured in the abdomen while working for Arnold Brewery delivering in Beaver Meadow.
John Houston (1866-1932) of Freeland Pa owned a bottling company 02/14/1890 located on Washington & South Street then is moved to Ridge Street.
Sold it to Fred Harlacher on 4/8/1892. Then John Houston goes back to school to become a Dr in 1892. Dr John Bernard Houston lived in Mount Carmel Pa.

Bob thanks very much for that. It does seem so odd that none of these labels have shown up, and I'm thinking more of the north American market, but even in the 1950's and 60's in the Vancouver region...
Found this in an antique store today in Pittsburgh. Ive dug a couple that have been broken, never found an intact one while digging. I've also never seen an unopened one before with some of the label...
