Hi, I'm puzzled by this bottle and my research just hits dead ends, maybe someone here can tell me something about this bottle.
The embossed letters on the bottoms indicates that it is an Owens-Illinois bottle made in Alton,IL 1954, so not very old.
Embossed letters on the bottom "PROP. OF COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO GARDEN CITY, KANSAS". As I understand Coca-Cola didn't make any other beverages at this time so what was it used for? I found a bottle with the same side stripes on eBay but it has Coca-Cola on the side while mine is just striped, the owner of that bottle claims it is pre WWI. I will add a picture of the side.
