its for sure a pop bottle , that style was only used for soda bottles in Canada .

a couple weeks ago we did a thread about New Brunswick bottles and that one wasn't mentioned . although I suspected there was some more bottlers there not yet mentioned

I have a book on nova scotia bottles but nothing for NB bottles so will try and come up with more info

Anyone seen one of these, cannot find any reference to it.

pop bottle maybe

your spelling is off , posted B.E nadea but reads B.E Nadeau on bottle

Nadeau is a French name which makes sense as Campbellton NB a largely francophone area but still haven't found anything yet

but its not uncommon to not find info on 30's > 40's era embossed soda's online , a lot of the time there isn't much which is partly why I've tried to post a lot of info to this site so there was stuff for people to find

It's not one I've seen before, although I don't see much stuff from NB.
well true when I found and posted the bottles to the NB thread a lot I hadn't seen before , as I'm in Ontario . its hard to determine how common or rare a bottle would actually be in NB

also think we actually have a fair bit of info on this one already , ( name , city , era , bottle used )

if the bottle only said B.E Nadeau all we'd know as it was being used somewhere in Canada with a French speaking population which could be anywhere from Northern Ontario > Quebec into NB and even a few other places

although Campbellton does seem like a small place to have multiple bottlers , but its population was actually higher in the 60's and 70's before starting to fall down recently

this style of bottle is referred to as a beehive bottle , it was used all over Canada in different places around the 1930's into the > 1950's

but not all bottlers had enough money to buy embossed bottles with there name and city on them , some only got plain bottles with none and used paper labels or caps to identify flavours .

I found this bottle last summer when swimming its a plain version with no embossing ,

so the fact he had enough $ to have B.E Nadeau - Campbellton NB embossed on the bottle indicates to me that he operated there for at least several years and was doing well enough in sales locally to justify the investment
