Ooops my bad sorry!...thanks Canadian!..Here is the best I can do for a pic of my Lions ACL...it was from a large group photo. I suspect it may be branded as Lions Beverages Ltd. right from the end of the 40's early 50's same bottle style but different ACL. [attachment=Freds west TS - Copy (3).jpg]

CB Thanks for the link - it worked and forgot I was involved in that discussion back in 2010. I'm doing some double-checking and see what else I can find.

Thanks Bob..I was thinking of doing that[;)], Museum Bottle has embossed lettering...doesn't appear to have embossing on the back hey?...but it's so dirty..hard to tell. Canadacan Bottle no embossed lettering.

The museum bottle has embossing on the back, it's the same as the Treasurenet bottle. And that one which you bought looks exactly like mine, and mine's not a Beverages bottle, it's a Mineral Water Works bottle. Yours could always be more recent than mine though, but mine looks significantly older than late 40's from the look of the glass.

How the heck can you see that embossing?...[:D] yes so yours is 1949 and before...is it in storage?...you could check for date codes and such. I used to never really do that years ago but with all this information on the net it sure has helped out. Well it will be interesting to see what is on the back of my bottle, there may be no bottle that exists with Lions Beverages Ltd.

I read the description! [;)] I'm rarely in the same city as my collection these days, but I'm 95% sure that it doesn't have anything on the bottom whatsoever except maybe a faint Consumers logo, and I don't think it even has that.

Actually, I could be wrong about it being the same embossing actually, their description doesn't match up to the Treasurenet one.Edit: Yep, I was wrong, they don't match up. They're different bottles, it's just the Brussels 1906 part that's the same.

yeah that's a neat Canadian bottle , I haven't seen one before so don't know anything about how rare or hard to find one be . it definity looks to be from 20's-30's era based on design of the bottle be from around that time .every city seems to have there art deco bottles from that time period so not surprising one from Vancouver
