    7up Rare Domion Bottling works.

    A friend of mine aquired this, lucky guy!!!...wish it was me!
    Anyways I've known for some time that Canada had paper label 7up's but never seen one, untill now! Forgive the quality of the photos, it's all I have to work with as my friend can't take photo's to save his life..lol. Fortunatly I have these, best I can offer is the ones from the original seller, but I can't up size them as they were from messages via phone.


    The label is from Dominion Bottling Works Ltd., Edmonton - Saskatoon. Note the bottle has no neck embossing, the base is marked with the Dominion glass logo.
    I believe the label to be from the 1933-1938 period. As Vancouver was also bottling 7up in 1933 pre ACL bottles...contrary to what Wikipedia says that it was sold as 7up beginning in 1936, that is untrue as evident in the photo's from Thorpes and Co's fleet of 7up delivery truck from 1933!

    its definitely unique , can't recall seeing anything similar , obviously lots of plain green bottles out there with the D logo on bottom , its the paper label which is really unusual , paper labels from that time period rarely survived this long

    Wow, nice find! Bet there aren't a lot of those out there to be had anymore. I know I've never seen one, I've got an early 7Up bottle with a partial label but I'm pretty sure it's not a label for 7Up. I'm surprised that one hasn't shown up from Toronto or Montreal yet.

    Yes I'm surprised nothing from Ontario has shown up, or even Vancouver.....I have no doubt they are out there in some closet collectors hoard, but then again at times a rare bottle will surface with common bottles.
    I hope to one day see a quart with the paper label intact!...we know the bottles exist from Country Club Beverages, Vancouver.
