decided the list needed an update which continues to grow with the addition of new bottles from places in Canada I wouldn't of suspected had one

Here are the different 7 UPs that I have from Saskatchewan. If there any more from different towns I would love to hear about it, picture even better.
no I don't know of any others , have a couple I didn't even have listed , I had strongly suspected there was a regina bottle but hadn't seen it yet

feel like the north battleford one was mentioned but hadn't seen the battleford version

what other towns in Sask would of been big enough back then to have a seven up bottler ?

These are all bottlers that could have bottled 7up, maybe because another bottler in that region already had the rights or they had their own version of 7up they didn't bother. Still keeping an eye out for any that might pop out.

Dominion Saskatoon I think was the earliest bottler of 7up in Saskatchewan, they were affiliated with Dominion Bottlers Edmonton. I've seen bottle caps with the two bottlers name on them.

The bottle on the left has Dominion bottlers embossed at the bottom of the bottle.

for Ontario and Quebec there is so many possible bottlers for seven up , which is why its been to hard to try and id all the different bottles , some listed in my book as bottling it but no marked bottles . also been some not even listed as bottling seven up that I've found bottles from such as Petawawa which was a total surprise

so for Sask with the smaller number of bottlers and cities large enough to have one. the list of possible seven up bottlers is smaller and easier to determine , I can't see there being a lot we don't already have listed but could still be the odd one


I haven't seen that embossed seven from dominion Saskatoon before , there is an embossed seven up bottle from Toronto its from the 30's so yours is likely fairly early too

haven't seen that one before , assumed I was missing a couple from sask as seemed to be a couple bigger places not on my list

is that a shield bottle ? assume there'd also be a swim bottle with similar markings
Definitely a swim girl bottle - 1949-1953. Has the cursive Fresh Up at the top and no lithium citrate in the ingredients. When the shield label came out in 1954, You Like It It Likes You was moved up near the top and onto one line, and Fresh up was moved down and printed in jumbled lower case (except the F). They did not do this on US bottles however. Canadian bottles are relatively easy to date in ranges because of the variations of the back labelling.20180913_212440.jpg

surprise find of a marked 7 up bottle from Eastern Ontario which wa not previously mentioned , in fact I never knew this bottler bottled seven up back then .

its from E Giesebrecht Petawawa also known as Vitality beverages , which was the bottler in Petawawa Ontario and would of serviced the Ottawa valley area , the large military base there and Pembroke area

but never seen one marked from that town before , its a swim version from late 40's early 50's , a seller from quebec had it for sale online and price was reasonable so I bought it

Actually a mid 40's bottle - no ingredients listed on the label. Not sure of the exact year they put ingredients on, but no later than 1947.

Ha ha. I had never seen it before and as far as I know I was only missing 3 bottlers from western Canada, so I bought it yesterday!! Saw this post about 15 minutes ago when I came on here to see if Prince Albert was listed and said to myself "that bottle sure looks like the one I just bought."
