Hi. New to the site. I'm a mostly a Crush guy, but this is a great thread on all things 7up. Noted a discussion a couple of months back about different places that had a 7-up bottler and speculation over Regina possibly having one. Was cruising Facebook Marketplace not long after and found these posted for sale. For those really interested, they're going cheap... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1249826808686927/?ref=search&referral_code=undefined
Yeah I noticed those...and they are 12oz too! A person could really amass a big collection going for all the 7oz, 10oz, 12oz, and quarts in Canada!

found this on the weekend at a nearby dump , had actually found this dump years ago its not very far from where I live but someone I missed this 28 oz seven up bottle which was lying on the surface under some leaves in a small area of rusted food cans I hadn't found years ago .

unfortuently the acl is mostly gone by now , however I wonder what it would of been like if I had found it a few years earlier

think this bottle is from the early 60's , never found a 28 oz shield 7 up bottle before

no city on back , " you like it , it likes you " along neck , fresh up with 7 up , contents 28 oz

Cool find for a dig. Nice big bottle .
Here's what they are with visible ACL

it was definitely a surprise to find a 28 oz 7 up bottle lying in the leaves off a trail I've used 100's of times since the 90's

I wonder what my bottle would of looked like it I had found it earlier , although acl was lying up so it was fully exposed to elements and perhaps why its faded so much

the area where I found it seems to be a hot zone for 7 up bottles , must of been someone there who drank it a lot either a local or cottager , found a number of various different 7 up's along that road or woods off it

noticed this bottle posted to a facebook bottle group , the poster had asked the group for more info about it and didn't seem to realise what it was .

would appear to be an 8 bubble swim bottle from Nova Scotia . used by Havelock Home Bottling co - Sydney and North Sydney Nova Scotia . not that familiar with them but they were one of the main bottlers in that area and lasted for a number of years . if your not familiar with Sydney NS is a small city north of Halifax on the northern part of Cape Breton Island , at one time more important an industrial hub and had coal mines

have posted a swim bottle from Sydney NS before but it was from the 50's , this one be much earlier and more than likely rare .

sorry the photo's aren't great but at least prove such a 7 up bottle even exists , it also has an embossed neck and 7 up logo was embossed on the bottom too like the other early 7 up's , the photo quality improves if you " click " on them and view them that way instead

i also came across this bottle online several months ago and don't know what happened to it , was very upset at seller for not being able to find a way to sell it to me . and i forgot to include it here

but its from Northern Ontario , a mining city called " Timmins " which boomed in the 30's and still fairly large city today .

bottled by - Gold Belt Brewery ltd Timmins Ont

sorry was never able to get a photo of the front but obviously as early swim bottle , similar wording as some 8 bubble versions but appears to have 7 bubbles and from the early 40's based on my research . this is the only picture i was ever able to get of it from the seller but does prove its from timmins and an early 7 up bottle

I have a seven up bottle by Nanaimo Bottling Works (BC)
Hi Terri, I have had at least 4 Nanaimo 7 Ups but they have all been from the same time frame (mid-50s) so all have been shield labels, jumbled Fresh up on the back. I'd love to see other examples from Nanaimo, but none have surfaced so far. I spend a fair amount of time looking on the Island, so you think I'd find one, if one existed.

Been awhile since an update. I have one more for you. It's not in my collection, but it is confirmed. Cranbrook BC - Selkirk Soft Drinks. The company started operation in 1954 or 1955, but unconfirmed when they began bottling 7-Up. The bottle shown (from a friend's collection) is from the 1954-1960 period based on the labeling.
