I have a tall lavender colored bottle that reads " Adams Bottling Works" New Kensington, P.A. - the problem is I want to find out the history of the bottling company and can't seem to find anything on the internet about it. Does anybody know anything about the history of this company ? Thanks!

I think thats a great idea!! But the problem is I am nowhere near PA!!:(
I live about 1200 miles away in Texas! We go to Cook's Forest,PA on vacation to our cabin rentals there about twice a year and bring back estate auction finds. This was one of them. Its a pretty big bottle. . . almost 12 in. tall . I just wondered what it probably held. Soda?

It's almost too pretty to just hold soda. Check out this Bizpedia info about Adams Bottling Works, filed as a fictitious name in 1951: https://www.bizapedia.com/pa/adams-bottling-works.html
