not sure if you saw that I found a large 7 up no deposit bottle in a mid 60's era can dump earlier this week . it appears to have had a paper label at some point , but has similar No deposit No return markings along the top edge as other 7 up bottles

has a white cap on it " 7 UP , The Uncola "

came across another 7up bottle in the wild , found this one in a small dump near a lake . it appears to have a date of 1949 on the bottom , red paint has faded away from being outdoors , has the sip it slowly wording on the back and you like 7up , 7up likes you

from 7 up ( ONTARIO ) limited Toronto

just noticed this one on ebay , suspected there might be some more from the east coast but was no aware of one from Sydney Nova Scotia , although it was a large industrial city back then so maybe it shouldn't be a huge surprise but I wasn't expecting to find one from there

this one is in poor condition and photo not great but appears to read 7 up bottling co ltd North Sydney NS but seller refers to it as Havelock beverages Sydney NS but solid proof one does exist

Hey awesome finds! Yes you mentioned the NDNR 7up, I may actually be acquiring one with the paper label intact.
I've found some interesting 7up items lately , also found some cans which weren't posted to this thread , seems to be a lot of 7up stuff out there waiting to be found .

the bottle I found today had been sitting there since the early 50's and that dump wasn't really that hard to find , not sure if anyone has dug or picked thru it before but I always enjoy finding the old 7up swim bottles

was looking at some population figures for Sydney NS and Cape Breton NS

seemed to have a higher population in the 40's and 50's when the port and coal mining still active there . Sydney seemed to be around 30,000 and cape Breton area around 120,000-130,000 , so there was a large enough population to support a bottler and its isolated location it need to have its own supply of bottles

Havelock bottling company was one of the larger bottlers in cape breton and appears to have operated for some time , listed as bottler for brands like orange crush and pepsi , doesn't mention 7up

also found some 7 up cans recently , some metal and some aluminum , these are 2 I found in a 90's era dumping near an old municipal dump

one is the thin metal version from late 80's/early 90's , some rust obviously and minor damage , but a lot of the logo and colour is still there

also a 7 up light from 90's , aluminum can , can't recall finding either of these cans before
