not all bottlers used embossed bottles , some used paper labels or no labels at allNew member responding here.. interesting read. I live in Emerson.. a small town now....but settled early in Manitoba's history. While our history books write about numerous breweries and pop producers in not only what is now known as Emerson....but West Lynne which was on the west side of the river... the mention of these facilities does not list their names. While we have dug and found evidence of Blackwoods and Pilgrim Bros. ..blob and torpedo bottles in West Lynne... often close to the HBC Fort... never have we found or seen a bottle embossed with Emerson on it....other than E. Casselman medicince bottles. The search continues.
most small towns have old medicine bottles from them , it makes sense that you'd find those
there is pop bottles mentioned in local history books or newspapers for which I have been able to find no evidence of , not a single bottle or even a broken shard of one . but there listed and clearly existed at some point in my town so maybe a bottle exists somewhere ?
